Grades 7 & 8
With funding from the Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF), LDANR is excited to launch its first transition support program!
The S.O.A.R. Secondary program is a small-group, self-advocacy and coping skills program for children in grades 7-8 with a diagnosed, identified, or suspected learning disability. This program, accompanied by a series of caregiver workshops, aims to ease the transition to high school 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. 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 high school. Sessions are taught using a combination of discussion, instruction, and engaging activities.
