ONCE A YEAR WE OFFER OUR LIVE ONE-DAY EDUCATIONAL EVENT DESIGNED TO PROVIDE CONNECTION AND UNDERSTANDING WHEN IT COMES TO LEARNING DIFFERENCES.

OUR MISSION

The Shift Your Thinking LD Summit offers parents and professionals a judgment-free place to learn, connect, and ask questions about how to support themselves and their children who learn and experience the world from a different perspective.

Emotional Health

 

  • You enter a room that is full of hope and understanding when it comes to you as a parent of a child with a learning difference. 

  • You sense you have entered a new space where you can freely talk about your concerns and views without shame or guilt. 

  • You feel understood by the insights offered about the world of learning differences with the focus on 'abilities' and possibilities.

  • You can learn about various strategies and approaches which will allow you to feel empowered — and focus not just learning but emotional and physical health of your child.

  • You feel a shift in how you are viewing learning differences and offer this new view to your child and others.

  • You have read Little Panic by Amanda Stern and you can’t wait to hear what else she has to say about anxiety and how you can support your child (and you)

  • You have read Susan Schenk’s book, Beyond Ok from Invisible to Invincible and you want to learn more about the journey of being a parent and professional in the school setting with a learning difference.

  • You want to understand anxiety and parenting perspectives from someone that has lived it and can offer you hope and strategies to support your child.

  • You’re a parent that is dealing with concerns when it comes to your child’s learning difference and you feel alone.

  • You’re trying to figure out strategies to deal with your child’s anxiety and learning struggles.

  • You have wanted to read or have read “Raising Differently Wired Kids” by Debbie Reber, “Little Panic” from Amanda Stern and/or “Beyond Ok from Invisible to Invincible by Susan Schenk — and you want to learn more from them and of course meet them in person.

  • You’re dealing with behaviours when it comes to students with learning differences and you want to understand why and what they are trying to tell others.

  • You want to step inside the world of parenting a child that learns differently so you can support parents in a new way.

  • You want to learn how to help students that are dealing with anxiety and what anxiety really looks like (it may not show up the way you think it does)

  • You want to gain insight into the world of learning differences so you can tap into these student’s gifts and talents in the school setting or community.
