STRIVE for Self-advocacy
- full day symposium -
Hundreds of GECDSB Grade 7, 8 & 9 students, staff and families will spend a day learning, thinking and talking about self-advocacy during the first STRIVE symposium at the WFCU Centre in Windsor on Tuesday, April 30th.
The students will be aiming to enhance their ability to communicate their needs appropriately and to know more about themselves as learners. Staff and parents will participate to improve their understanding of what students with learning disabilities need and how to enable and support them.
The symposium begins at 9:30 a.m. with keynote speaker Blake Fly. The rest of the day will be spent in fun and empowering workshops about technology, self-advocacy and learning interests.
The day's activities conclude at 3:00 p.m.
