The discovery of your child’s learning disability at school can feel overwhelming. A teacher may suspect a learning disability if your child constantly struggles with any of the following: learning, physical ability, behaviour, emotional control or communication. In Alberta, the law gives parents and/or guardians the right to make decisions about their child’s education. This video will help guide you through the assessment process, the development of an Individualized Program Plan (IPP) and how to work with the school’s recommendations for the child. Through this journey parents and school staff will learn how to build on your child’s strengths to achieve success in school. 

Target audience: Parents and/or guardians of Indigenous children and youth in Alberta schools, service providers and educators working with Indigenous communities.
