DJ’s passion and expertise grows out of a deep personal understanding of learning disabilities. DJ Cunningham, CEO has a significant learning disability, as does his brother. In school he faced all the issues of those with hidden disabilities: feelings of inadequacy and stupidity, concealment, embarrassment, ridicule, teasing, being viewed as lazy or defiant. He used common coping mechanisms such as becoming invisible; acting out; and at times and with growing sophistication, “playing the LD card.”
At Trent University, he discovered assistive technologies and a door to independence and academic success opened. DJ has been a user of Assistive Technologies for the past 15 years and has trained hundreds of students and led numerous training workshops. In 2008, he co-founded LEARNstyle Ltd. and have been service providers for SEA claims training, PD sessions, Tutoring, Tech Camps and keynote speeches on Assistive Technologies. His vision for Assistive Technology has grown and we now see it as truly necessary for some but beneficial for all.
