Learning Disabilities Association of Canada (LDAC) Research Hub: Synthesizing the last decade of Canadian research on specific learning disorders

The objective of this project is to develop a user-friendly, online database of Canadian research that directly relates to Specific Learning Disabilities (SLD), and provide research report synthesizing the contents of the research hub to date. This project will benefit Canadians, as it will provide stakeholders involved with SLD easy access to information. Parents, teachers, psychologists, social workers, employers, and individuals with a SLD, will benefit from being able to access a database, which strictly focuses on SLD and disorders often associated with SLD, such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), anxiety, and depression. Easy access to specific research will help to educate Canadians on a variety of aspects of SLD such as causes, diagnostic criteria, assessment, underlying cognitive processing difficulties, learning strategies, and assistive technology.
