About Dr. Todd Cunningham
LearnDifferent.org is based on the research and experience of Clinical Psychologist Dr. Todd Cunningham, a faculty member in the Applied Psychology and Human Development department of the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education at the University of Toronto. He completed his Postdoctoral Fellowship at the Hospital for Sick Children after earning a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the University of Toronto.
He started LearnDifferent.org as a place for students with learning differences (and their parents) to better understand their assessments, and develop strategies for managing those differences so they don’t stand in the way of learning.
Today, his area of expertise is adaptive educational technology, specifically the circumvention of students’ academic weaknesses to help them better attain and retain knowledge.
Todd has expanded LearnDifferent.org into a resource for educators. Thousands have used Todd’s expertise to optimize instruction. More have attended his guest lectures, keynote addresses and conference presentations, or watched him regularly on news outlets, like the CBC and Global TV as a special education expert.
