This 3-session series, will examine functional life skills programming domains and work to subdivide the program outcomes into a chronological, age-appropriate progressive sequence for students in Gr. 4-12. Participants will collaborate to develop the sequence as well as suggest potential activities to accompany the sequence. At the end of this three session series, school teams will be able to use the developed scope/sequenced document as a guide to assist in building individual student program plans at any grade level to best support individual student growth and development.
Please note that this series has changed locations.
New location is the Centre 2000, Al Robertson Room.
