Summer Tutoring Programs Available at The Learning Disabilities Association of Peterborough
LDAP Offices 151 Kings Street PTBO
Tuesday, July 03, 2012 to Friday, August 17, 2012
The Learning Disabilities Association of Peterborough is offering summer opportunities for learning through its Computers for Learning Development (CFLD) Program for students from Kindergarten to Grade 10, and the Assistive Software Training Workshops for Parents.
The CFLD Program is open to any student struggling with reading, writing, and math. “Any child who has learning challenges is welcome to participate in the Program. We provide one-to-one tutoring specific to the child’s particular needs.” states Program Coordinator Kristi McKay. “Often summer holidays can be a time when a child will lose ground academically. Providing CFLD in the summer helps students sustain skills, even improve them and then they are better positioned for the fall.”
Parents too can benefit this summer with workshops which target assistive software training. “Students these days utilize computers in the classroom, and this is an opportunity for parents to learn more about the software they are using like Kidspiration, Inspiration, WordQ, Kurzweil, Premier and Dragon Dictate. Parents can be a more active participant in homework and keep a handle on how their child is learning.” says McKay. “Parents are in the best position to help their child learn, and knowing how to utilize the software provides them with a significant leg up.”
The CFLD Program runs from July 2nd to August 17th at a cost of $25.00 per session. The Parent Software Workshops are scheduled throughout the summer and are also $25.00 per training session.
