Toronto, Canada (PressExposure) July 07, 2011 -- The Learning Disabilities Association of Toronto District (LDATD) is well underway with making changes to its communications and social media plans. Beginning June 2011, the LDATD has started to use social networking sites as a platform to reach out to parents, teachers, youth and the community.
Facebook and Twitter have become the first of the many social networks that the LDATD will be engaging in. With the amount of users on Facebook and Twitter, all ranging in various ages and physical abilities, the LDATD hopes to accomplish its communications goals to promote enhanced learning.
The LDATD YouTube channel will also bring that communication forward by visually demonstrating how the LDATD can have a positive impact on those suffering from disabilities, and those who wish to help.
Members have continued to benefit from programs by the LDATD, which can be found on the organizations website and social media outlets.
As a parent, its tough to sit back and watch your child struggle with communication, notably handwriting, a key element in schoolwork. So we enrolled our son in keyboarding at LDATD, say LDATD members Barry Critchley and Dr. Leah Harrington. He has been attending classes for two years and has made great progress. He also has a great sense of confidence, for which we thank LTATD. Without their help, life would have been a bigger struggle.
The LDATD will continue to monitor and evaluate social media efforts in order to increase fans and followers and to become an established organization in the electronic world.

The LDATD is committed to being a center of excellence in the provision of education, advocacy, research and services and to creating a society in which children, youth and adults with learning disabilities are able to achieve the full expression of their intellect and abilities and are enabled to become contributed members of our society.
