In this discussion, we will look at constructive ways to deal with bullies
that you might encounter on a daily basis.
2. Helping with Homework 12:40-1.10pm
Is getting homework done more than a chore for your child? You’re not alone - most children avoid doing their homework. If you’ve ever wondered how to help your child do homework without a struggle, this training will show you how! Join us for a great discussion on new and fun tips for helping children with their homework and how to be supportive of their educational efforts.
3. Transition IEP & Moving Forward 1.20-2.00pm
The Transition IEP is the most important part when it comes to helping youth with disabilities learn how to successfully transition from high school to post-secondary opportunities. This workshop helps to teach everyone exactly how to make the most of the TIEP, and how to best work with youth with disabilities to make sure they have the tools and information to fulfill their post-secondary goals.
