CALGARY, Jan. 31 /CNW/ - Calgary is a world leader in the field of
education and research for learning disabilities and ADHD. As a model of
excellence for many, the Foothills Academy Society, Calgary's premiere
educational facility, is hosting their first-ever World Summit in Lake Louise,
Alberta from April 14th through 16th, 2008.
Why the need for the World Summit 2008: Learning Disabilities Fact or
Fiction? It is estimated that 10-15% of the population has a learning
disability and/or ADHD. Many who are undiagnosed live marginalized lives,
underutilizing their skills and abilities. This has a cost to business,
society and to personal lives. "The purpose of this important summit is to
transition learning disabilities from an invisible disability into a visible
ability", explained 2008 Chair, Brenda Martin.
Experts in fields such as psychology, medicine, government, research,
education, justice, corporate and consumers, will debate and explore positions
about learning disabilities - are they fact or fiction?
