Grades 11 & 12
The SOAR Post-Secondary program is a small-group college and university transition support program for students in Grade 11 and 12 with a diagnosed, identified, or suspected learning disability. This program aims to prepare students for the transition to post-secondary by equipping them with the necessary skills to navigate their new environment and advocate for their needs, thus fostering strong socio-emotional skills to set them up for success.
In SOAR Post-Secondary, participants work on developing self-advocacy and coping strategies, and learn about the various resources available at college and university to prepare for a positive transition to post-secondary education. Sessions are taught using a combination of discussion, instruction, guest speakers and engaging activities.
Participants attending the sessions must:
- Be in Grade 11 or 12 at the time of participation;
- Have a diagnosed or suspected Learning Disability or ADHD;
- Have an Individual Education Plan (IEP);
- Not be diagnosed/identified with an intellectual disability or have significant behavioural support needs.
