We were pleased to offer a series of three workshops, BUILDING PARENT RESOURCES: PROMOTING STUDENT SUCCESS. These workshop series were made possible with funding provided by the Ministry of Education PRO Grant (Parents Reaching Out). Thank you to our guest speakers Adam Davis, Jennifer Cordeiro and Linda Shoebottom.

Adam Davis who provided a hands on workshop that enabled parents to see what a math classroom looks like for in their child’s schools today. Mathematics, Numeracy and LD was an insightful presentation offering valuable take home resources.

Jennifer Cordeiro offered an enlightening workshop on Social Skills & Mindfulness. Her experience and openness with the group allowing participants to encompass a new perspective was helpful and effective.

Finally, thank you to Linda Shoebottom who educated parents on LD, ADHD and advocacy. Her knowledge and solid information assisted parents with the process of IEP’s and various methods to advocate for their own children.

Thank you to our parents who joined us in the workshops. If you would like further information on any of the workshops or to contact the speakers directly please contact our office at 519-352-2024.
