The current pandemic and the uncertainty that it has brought have had a significant impact on students, teachers, and others in the community. But, we are reliant! We are all doing our best to adapt to this new reality in creative ways.

To help all those working hard on reopening schools, especially for students with special needs, the Learning Disabilities Institute offers you this unique online Summer Conference: “Back to school, things will be fine!”:

• Managing in times of pandemics
• Care and inclusion
• Inclusive pedagogical practices
• Innovative digital tools to support learning difficulties

This event will take place on June 25 and 26, 2020. It is 100% online (90% of the conferences will be broadcasted live).
All participants have access to live sessions and rebroadcasts until midnight, June 30th (unless otherwise specified in the program).

Flat rate: $250 CAD per person
