Sponsored by LDAO, you can register here for the FREE Webinar on May 25: Strategies to Support the Success of Students with LDs on Exams and Standardized Tests,  and facilitated by 2 TDSB Special Education Assistant Curriculum Leaders – one from York Mills CI, the second from Sir John A Macdonald. Grade levels: I/S.

“Exams and standardized tests can be stressful for students and staff in general, and in particular, for students with learning disabilities (LDs). This webinar will focus on how educators can prepare students with LDs to write exams or standardized tests and assist educators in creating exams with content and formatting that is “necessary for some, and good for all”. The presenters will provide educators with the tools they need to create effective exams, which will allow students to demonstrate what they know. Using current research and their own experience in the field, the presenters will share strategies to support:
• formatting of exams for student success;
• preparing students for exams;
• leading and collaborating with colleagues. ”
