Announcing our October Awareness Month Events!

At the Learning Disabilities Association of Sudbury, we are excited to announce our activities planned for the month of October in support of Learning Disabilities October Awareness Month.

The first activity that we have planned for this month is the Proclamation day, which is booked for October 2nd at 9:00 am at the new MacLeod Public School. This event is where we will be premiering our new school age workshop titled “Be Cool in School”. Our latest Gr. 2 – 4 Awareness Workshop was inspired by Disney’s Blockbuster, “Frozen”. Students will be provided with messages of understanding and empathy for their peers, “who learn in a different way”. Through the screening of selected movie clips, participants can easily draw the parallels between the movie’s main characters, Elsa & Anna, and the variety of learners in their school. The workshop concludes with an exercise that demonstrates how every student possesses unique and special abilities.

Our main event for this year’s October Awareness Month is on October 7th at 7:00 pm, which is a workshop presented by Angie DeMarco at the Science North Cavern.  Students, parents, and educators are welcome to join the Learning Disabilities Association of Sudbury and Science North for our evening workshop presented by Angie DeMarco titled “Learning Disability – Neuro-Diverse NOT Neuro-Deficit”. Participants of the workshop will come to appreciate that their child’s unique neurodiversity is at the root of their child’s many amazing future accomplishments. Awareness and advocacy of their learning differences will ensure their success.
