Workshop, Film, Panel, Discussion - A Provincial Outreach Program for FASD
The number of students with complex learning needs seems to be growing all the time.
In this live webcast session being offered at Selkirk College, you will learn about Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder and how an approach to supporting students with this disorder can be utilized with all kids who have learning challenges.
Executive Functioning, the set of cognitive skills that help us all get things done, is an area often compromised when people's "wiring" is different. It includes planning, organizing, prioritizing and transitioning. Practical tools to build skills in these areas, helps equip people across the lifespan for greater effectiveness in learning and life.
By understanding our individual students, we can begin to work toward finding the strategies that will lead to improved success in the classroom.
We will provide you with information about current research, strategies and resources.
