February News from the LDAO-C

SPECIAL EVENT:
Neuro-diverse NOT Neuro-deficit
with Angie DeMarco
Date: Sat, February 28, 2015
Time: 10:00-11:15am
Location: Mindware Academy
Tickets: $20.00 each

Our society has been the fortunate recipient of incredible achievements that have been shared by the neurology of non-typical thinkers who are said to carry the identification known as a “learning disability”. In reality, the differences speak to a natural, long standing, human variation; a different way of processing information, a different way of thinking.

Please join Angie DeMarco as she explores many facets of this learning difference, while workshop participants will come to treasure that their child’s unique neurodiversity is at the beginning of their child’s many amazing future accomplishments.


Get ready for
Sunshine Day Camp 2015

Great news: we’ll be opening registrations later this week!

The Sunshine Day Camp is the LDAO-C signature program for children aged 7 to 12 who have a learning disability and/or ADHD that focuses on development of social skills. Located in a safe and secure environment, our campers can expect an atmosphere that is positive, supportive, social and fun. The camp provides training in social skills while also offering fun, non-competitive activities like arts and crafts, sports, music, and special presenters. Our excellent, trained staff reinforces targeted social skills and helps each child to build self esteem. All camp activities use positive techniques based on collaborative problem solving.

STAY TUNED!

Spirit Day this Friday – Favorite Decade Day

Friday, Feb 27th is our next School Spirit day! It’s “Favorite Decade Day”! 

Do you like bright, neon colours and animal prints? Then the 80’s are the decade for you! 

Are you more interested in flower power, peace signs and tie-dye? Then the 70’s are your decade! 

If you prefer the 1950’s, then poodle skirts, rolled-up jeans and slicked back hair will be your outfit of choice! 

On Friday, children are invited to dress up to represent their favorite decade!!
