Welcome to 2019!
This month’s Parent Support Group will be at the LDA office on January 21st from 7:00 to 8:30. We will be discussing "Assistive Technology" and how it relates to students that have a learning disability and/or ADHD.
We will be demonstrating the use of Speech to Text and Text to Speech software as well as many of the other features of what "Google Read and Write" has to offer. We will explore the use of “Framed Paragraphs” as a writing tool.
This software is available to TVDSB and LDCSB students.
You will have the opportunity to use this software so that you are better able to support your child at home.
As we will be using computers, this will limit the number of parents that we can accommodate. If you would like to attend, please RSVP by January 16th to the following email: firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to seeing you!
Debbie Shore Reid and Kathy Clark
