Upcoming Workshops for TDSB Parents

As part of a Tri-Ministry, College, University and School Board partnership to develop best practices to support students with special needs who choose college or university as their post-secondary the following workshops have been set-up:

  1. An evening workshop, Transition Workshop for Parents is open to all parents (or support persons) of a child with a disability (ASD, mental health, physical, medical, sensory, learning disability) who have questions or concerns about their child’s transition to post-secondary.  Topics covered will include:  applying to college/university, modified admission requests, accommodations and supports available at the post-secondary level, documentation requirements for registration with accessibility/disability services.  This workshop will take place March 8, 2017.
  2. A one day workshop, ASD Transition Day is an information day for students with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD’s) or a Non-Verbal Learning Disability (NVLD’s) and their families.  It is intended for students who are in grades 10, 11 or 12 and are planning to attend a post-secondary institution (college or university).  The ASD Transition Day will be offered on April 26, 2017.  Participants will be asked to choose a session when they register.
