Free Community Workshop at Sault College on Oct. 11th at 7p.m at Sault College Room B1170. Workshop led by Angie DeMarco. The goal of this workshop is to understand what a learning disability is, what it is not, what it feels like and why students learn differently. This experiential workshop will build awareness and empathy regarding the processing differences that affect the academic success of students with a learning disability. Participants will be guided through exercises intended to provide a better understanding of the challenges and impacts facing a student with common processing differences such as:
- Visual Processing Difference
- Spatial Processing Difference
- Processing Speed
All learning differences can be addressed with succes by honouring a student's learning profile as well as providing appropriate accommodations.
