Parent Support Group Meetings - September-June

Dear Parents,

Welcome back to a new school year! I look forward to working with many of you again in this year's LDA Parent Support Group. 

This group is FREE to attend by all parents and is a fantastic resource for you as a parent with a child with a learning disability and/or ADHD.  It is designed to provide an open, supportive setting where parents can share their experiences, and to gain advice, new ideas, resources or to learn about what’s new in the schools today. 

We would love to see you come out! 

The Parent Support Group meets September to June of each school year and is held on the third Monday of each month from 7:00 to approximately 8:30pm at LDA London Region.

On September 18th, we will be discussing two topics: "How to work effectively with you child's school" and "A brief overview of Individual Education Plan Procedures".

Please RSVP by responding to my email supportgroup@ldalondon.ca.

Looking forward to seeing you!
