Parent Support Group Meetings for School Year 2019-2020

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 Group.

This group is FREE to attend by all Parents and is a 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 Group meets monthly from September to May (not December) and is typically held on a Monday evening from 7:00 to 8:30pm at LDA London Region.

Before each meeting, I will send out the focus of our discussions, so that you know if the topic will be helpful for you.

Our first meeting will be held on Monday, September 30th and our topic will be:

  1. “IEPs 101”

  2. What does a good IEP look like?

  3. What are the best accommodations for students with LD and/or ADHD?

  4. What are the timelines for revisions?

  5. Should student programs be “accommodated” or “modified”?

  6. What should you do if you disagree with what’s on your child’s IEP?

  7. If we have time…we may be able to discuss a new document called: “Special Education in Ontario – Kindergarten to Grade 12”

If you plan to attend our September meeting, could you kindly RSVP by September 24th. Even if you do not RSVP, you are still welcome to show up😊
