Resources for Teachers & Professionals
As an organization that has supported students with learning disabilities/disorders since 1991, the Centre staff have extensive experience in teaching struggling students. In 2018, the Centre began making many of its resources available to the broader community of teachers. This initiative was a natural evolution from opening the professional development sessions for its staff to the broader community.
Check out the extensive list of professional development sessions available to teachers, home schooling parents, educational assistants, and professionals.
