October 21, 2015 - \The Right to Learn, The Power to Achieve! October is Learning Disabilities Awareness Month. On Friday, October 16, 2015, Special Education Resource Teacher Martina Reynolds organized two workshops for students to highlight that everyone learns differently and that all students should use their unique abilities. Students in grades 2 to 6 were active participants in two presentations entitled "Be Cool in School" and "LD 101" delivered by Jarah Preston of LDAS. Deputy Mayor Joyce Landry-Altman was on hand to make the Official Proclamation, along with LDAS Board Chair Liz Brett-Dickie. Students also heard from Matthew Turcotte, a grade 11 St. Charles College student and Honorary Chair of LDAS. Matthew is an encouraging example of someone who has overcome a recognized learning disability.
