Helping kids with learning disabilities

The typical classroom learning environment doesn’t work for all students, let alone a student with a learning disability. However, more schools are making the shift towards a new concept called Universal Design.

 

The Montreal chapter of the Learning Disabilities Association of Quebec will be hosting a presentation featuring the director of the Office of Students with Disabilities at McGill University, Frederic Fovet, who will discuss how this concept can help students with their studies.

Parents and teachers are invited to learn more about this concept, which adapts the regular classroom setting to fit the needs of all students, including those with more difficulties. This embraces the notion of inclusion instead of offering specialized services.

This presentation will be held on February 11, 2013 from 7:30 p.m. to 9:15 p.m. at the Montreal Children’s Hospital located at 2300 Tupper St. in Montreal.

Admission is $5; tickets are available at the door.
