ADDRESSING THE CHALLENGE OF DIVERSITY IN THE CLASSROOM
AUTISM, ANXIETY, ADHD, LEARNING DISABILITIES, COGNITIVE DELAYS-----these are only a few examples of the challenges that children face and that we, as professionals, must address daily. The diversity of challenges can be very time consuming and even overwhelming for all of us. This seminar will examine concrete ways that classroom teachers, education assistants, educational specialists and parents can work together to enhance the growth and development of all students and effectively address the diversity of learners in today’s schools. EduTalks Seminars is pleased and fortunate to feature DR. DAVE CARTER, former Director of Special Education in Surrey, as leader of this Workshop. DR. CARTER has been an educator in B.C public schools since 1973, having worked also as a classroom teacher, school psychologist, University faculty member and consultant to the BC Ministry of Education and the Attorney General of BC. With over 40 years of working with a multitude of different learners, we look forward to the skills and strategies he will impart to this important topic.
