Session Location:
Central Alberta Regional Consortium 8 Page Avenue, Red Deer, AB
About the Session:

Do you know a child who has great ideas verbally but struggles to get their thoughts down on paper? Do you know a child who struggles with motivation and getting started on tasks? For some students, it seems the challenge of keeping their binders and belongings organized is a full time job that often results in missing assignments, rework and frustration. This session will focus on the reasons why a student may be having these difficulties along with strategies and suggestions to help increase their participation and engagement in class.
