Walking a Mile in Their Shoes: Helping Parents to a Better Understanding of Learning Challenges.

Through a Parent Reaching Out Grant, the Danforth CTI School Council, in partnership with the Integra Program of the Child Development Institute, is pleased to welcome staff, students, parents and neighbouring schools to a four-part workshop series exploring learning needs, challenges, and tools for supporting student success.

Workshop #3: The Social Impact of Learning Disabilities

High school years can be stressful socially for teens. In this workshop, we will discuss why students with learning disabilities have a particular risk of social challenges with peers. Participants will gain an understanding of social competence and explore strategies for supporting students in learning important social skills for everyday life.
