Community Connections!

Creating strong partnerships between school, parents and students is crucial in how well a child academically progresses especially those with a diagnosis. It is imperative that we build strong partnerships between school and family to help remove attitudinal barriers towards these students. More importantly, the practices of acceptance, inclusion and empathy by those within the academic community has got to be promoted and supported. Author Maggie will discuss how her book "Hallway Connections" can be used as a teaching tool to build bridges within any school or community at large to help those students affected by a diagnosis!
