Grades 11 & 12
The S.O.A.R. Post-Secondary program is a small-group, self-advocacy and coping skills program for students in grades 11-12 with a diagnosed, identified, or suspected learning disability. This program, accompanied by a series of caregiver workshops, aims to ease the transition to post-secondary by equipping students with the necessary skills to navigate their new school environment and advocate for their learning needs, thus fostering strong socio-emotional skills to set them up for success.
In S.O.A.R. Post-Secondary, participants work on identifying their individual strengths and areas of improvement, communicating their needs, and developing strategies to prepare for a positive transition to post-secondary. Sessions are taught using a combination of discussion, instruction, and engaging activities.
