Special Education and Your Child; Workshops for Parents of Children with Special Needs
An evening of workshops directed to families of children with special needs. 4 workshops (1 hour each) will be offered twice. Participants will be able to choose and attend a maximum of 2.
Join us for a hands-on exploration of “Read & Write” and Google Suite. You will have an opportunity to experience first hand what it is like to use these tools to access the curriculum just as our students do.
Learn tips to help you positively advocate for your child with special needs during education setting meetings. There will be an opportunity for parents to make suggestions as to how school staff can help support their concerns.
Mental Health Supports at the OCSB
Who can you approach for help when your child is experiencing mental health issues? Come and learn about the mental health resources available at the board and in the community to support students with mental health challenges.
On My Way - Transitions
Effective transitions planning allows for students to be successful as they move through their day, activities or settings. Come and learn how we support successful transitions at all different points for students - prior to the start of school, throughout a student's daily schedule, from grade to grade, and when moving from one school to another.
