This webinar will provide insight into the undergraduate learning experience in university settings for students with LDs. Educators attending this webinar will gain an understanding of what the student experience at university might look like for students with LDs and how to help prepare students for a successful transition to post-secondary learning.
Accessing Support for LDs in University: Student perceptions of support received from the accessibility service office
In order to access support and accommodation in University, students must disclose their disability to the accessibility services office. This article explores how useful students with LDs perceive these supports and accommodations to be to their learning.
This module is intended to provide an introduction to the new demands and expectations that are placed on students when they begin secondary school and prepare educators to support students with LDs while they navigate their way through secondary school.
If academic and applied streams are amalgamated, there is a possibility that students who require more support - such as students with LDs - could fall through the cracks. Educators should be aware of the following potential challenges that may be caused by de-streaming.
Graduating from secondary school is a rewarding and exciting time. For students with LDs making the transition to work, it can also be a time of stress and anxiety. Support from educators can help reduce anxiety and prepare students for success in the workplace.
The transition from secondary to post-secondary can be a challenging time for students with learning disabilities (LDs). In order to mitigate this, there are a range of resources and support available both before and after the transition.
The transition from grade eight to grade nine is a daunting time for many students. But for students with learning disabilities (LDs), it can be a particularly challenging experience. In the Peel District School Board, Erindale Secondary School and Homelands Senior Public School have created a unique relationship to support the transition of all students, especially students with LDs.
n this special edition podcast, we’re going to look at what path these students took to get where they are today, what that transition looked like, the hurdles they’ve had to overcome, the successes they’ve had, and the lessons they’ve learned along the way. Their teacher, Jenessa Dworet, will also comment about the progress these three students have made and how her teaching style has changed since we last spoke to her two years ago.
The transition from elementary to secondary school is generally considered to be one of the most challenging for adolescents, both with and without LDs. This practice-informed summary focuses on the key considerations and steps to support a successful transition from elementary school to secondary school for students with LDs.
How can I prepare my students with LDs to transition to post-secondary education? Where can students with LDs find support after secondary school?
As students move through their secondary school years and the focus sharpens on what their options may be after secondary school, it is important to note that there are numerous paths to consider and that the pathways may not be linear nor mutually exclusive. For secondary students with LDs, the transition pathways may include:
