Calgary Region Learning Disabilities & ADHD Network
Who We Are
The Calgary Region Learning Disabilities & ADHD Network (the "Network") is a collaborative impact group dedicated to supporting individuals who live with learning and attention issues. The volunteer members represent a broad group of organizations across the public, private, and nonprofit sectors in the Calgary region. Members include staff from CBE, CCSD, Tsuut'ina Education, Stoney Education Authority, Calgary Academy, Foothills Academy, Rundle Academy, University of Calgary, SAIT, Mount Royal University, Alberta Health, CanLearn, CIWA, Learning Disabilities Association of Alberta, psychologists, ADHD coaches and other individuals united by their passionate commitment to realize the Network’s strategic goal:
Individuals with LD and/or ADHD will have the necessary support, resources, and opportunities
within the Calgary region to be successful and thrive.
Originally called the LD Stakeholders Group in the 1980s, the organization has continued to evolve. It is now supported by an annual grant from an anonymous donor disbursed by the Calgary Foundation, and since November 2020, has been formally operating through Estelle Siebens Community Services at Foothills Academy Society. The Network’s most recent project was the creation and launch of their resource website https://ldadhdnetwork.ca in June 2021.
