Goals during the regular school year include assisting students to develop self advocacy skills and empowering them in the classroom, within the realm of their school day.
We will be posting activities, games and information in the coming weeks to assist your child to continue with these goals. Firstly, however, we thought we would share an informative article on just what that support looks like, the importance of it, and the relevance within their school day.
We look forward to continuing our support to your families during this time.
