The "Open a PDF file to a set destination" section of the link that Daniel provided does do what you want, but you need to set your TOC links to point to the destinations rather than pages.
However, it is very time consuming to set up all the destinations one at a time, so we use axesPDF QuickFix to automatically create them from the headings all at once. You still need to fix all the TOC links, but that takes no time at all.

Subject: Re: [WebAIM] TOC Hyperlinks question
Thanks but that's not it. The request is a link in the table of contents that takes the reader to the beginning of the specific section or subhead within a section and begins to read. This particular TOC doesn't have page numbers but the list of the many sections within the document. Some pages have multiple subheads on the same page. They want the reading to start when taken to the link to a specific subhead within a specific page.
