The Learning Disabilities Association of Niagara Region (LDANR) is offering a free pilot program this winter, starting March 9th, for Grade 11 and 12 students who are on an Individualized Education Plan at school with a diagnosed or suspected learning disability (e.g., dyslexia) and are planning to attend college or university. The program is called SOAR Post-Secondary.
The SOAR program will help prepare these students for the transition to post-secondary and will touch on topics such as self-advocacy, coping with stress, accessing accommodations at post-secondary, and more. They will also hear from other students with learning disabilities who have gone through the transition to post-secondary. Parents will be offered workshops on topics such as how their role as an advocate will change, and how to support their child’s mental health. The participants will also receive some Brock University and Niagara College ‘swag’.
This opportunity is brought to you by The Learning Disabilities Association of Niagara Region
