Trashman, I’m back! I went and looked around their site a bit more. When I used their services I did it all in person at my local chapter as their office was very near my home. Nowadays, everything is also available online (or so it seems).

When I did a quick look on the website http://www..ldao.ca I found this course. It might be helpful for you. I’m not sure if I’m supposed to do this but here is a cut and paste of one of the adult courses that I thought might interest you:


Adult Workshop Series: Self-Advocacy for Adults

Self-Advocacy for Adults

This online workshop is self-pace and self-directed. The moderator is available through email or the bulletin boards to assist with any questions you may have.

Have you ever felt that someone didn’t understand you or that you were treated unjustly because of your learning disability? Have you needed help and did not know how to ask for it? Or asked for help a little too late to benefit you? Did you ever try to explain what your learning disability is and the person didn’t understand?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, this workshop can help you develop the skills and strategies you need to be successful. Becoming an effective self-advocate means that you know how to explain to others what your learning disability is and are good at asking for what you need. The first step in learning how to be an effective self-advocate is being able to talk about your learning disability.

Unit Breakdown

Unit 1: About Learning Disabilities

Unit 2: About Self-Advocacy

Unit 3: Disclosure in the Workplace

Unit 4: Strategies to help adults with Learning Disabilities

Unit 5: Your Legal Rights Unit 6: Workshop Wrap-Up


ADHD (or ADD if you prefer to call it that) is just one type of learning disability out there that affects people. Check the site and see if their is a local ‘in person’ chapter close to you. You can set up an appt. to see someone there (free) and get some in person direction.

Hope this helps.
