ADAPT – A Virtual Support Program for Island Workers and Their Employers
Unsupported Learning Disabilities Hold Everyone Back.
Accommodating Learning Disabilities Helps Everyone Reach New Heights.
ADAPT is a partnership between Workplace Learning PEI (WLPEI) and the Government of New Brunswick’s Virtual Learning Strategy (VLS) adult-learner support model.
The ADAPT (Accommodating learning Disabilities to Accelerate Performance and Thrive) Program provides Island employers and workers with FREE access to a suite of virtual services to screen for, diagnose, and support learning disabilities in the workplace.
ADAPT is a partnership between Workplace Learning PEI (WLPEI) and the Government of New Brunswick’s Virtual Learning Strategy (VLS) adult-learner support model. The project is funded in part by the Government of Canada (Employment and Social Development).
ADAPT leverages both the workplace experience of WLPEI and the VLS’ tools and knowledge in effectively supporting learning disabilities to provide pathways for employers and employees to identify and address learning disabilities in the workplace.
Importantly, this includes access through the VLS networks to a licensed/registered psychologist that will complete a timely assessment, if required.
Once a diagnosis is made, the project team will offer recommendations on ways to support the individual’s learning disabilities. These accommodations will help them reach their full potential at their workplace and in life.
It’s a win-win for Island employers and workers!
