President’s Message:

I am thrilled to be re-joining LDANB as President during the 2015-16 fiscal year, and to be reconnecting with the excellent Board members and administrators that have made such a difference in the lives of individuals with Learning Disabilities and their families in this province. It speaks highly of the organization that many of the Board Executive members that I was privileged to work with years ago are still providing leadership in this critical area of service. Having worked with André Deschênes over the past couple of years in other capacities, I am confident that I am joining an administrative leadership team with competent and passionate individuals at the helm!

I am excited about the opportunities before us, including the formal collaboration with Post-secondary Education, Training and Labour in the provision of cohesive and consistent services and processes regarding psycho-educational assessment throughout the province of New Brunswick.  In my role as an
Associate Professor with UNB’s Faculty of Education, I look forward to continuing opportunities to advocate and educate teachers, administrators and policy-makers on behalf of our consumers.

It will be my privilege to serve the Association as President in the upcoming year. I look forward to working with both new Board members and existing volunteers and staff to make 2015-16 a year of productivity, sustainability and meaningful contributions on behalf of New Brunswickers with learning disabilities.

Dr. Patricia Peterson
President, LDANB
