The Windsor-Essex Down Syndrome Association (Up About Down) is excited to invite parents to a seminar about Teaching Your Child To Read. This seminar is intended for Parents/Caregivers of children and adults with Down Syndrome who are looking for tips and strategies for early reading skills.

Thank you for the many responses! We chose the date based on popular demand and hope this will accommodate the majority.

When: Monday, November 4th 6:30 p.m.

Where: Central Park Athletics, 3400 Grand Marais Rd East. “Small Meeting Room” on the second floor just past the restaurant (not far from the gymnastics viewing area for you regulars). Enter the parking lot off of Grand Marais between Walker and Central. Enter the building at the main entrance at the south east corner nearest to Grand Marais, go up the stairs and to the right past the restaurant, there will be signage.

Presenter: Shelley Lavoie. Shelley has a Developmental Psychology Degree from the University of Windsor and a Learning Disability Specialist Post Graduate Diploma from Cambrian College in Learning Strategies as well as Assistive Technology. She has spent many years as an Adult Literacy Instructor at the Windsor Public Library teaching individuals with varying levels of abilities. Currently, Shelley owns the Literacy Loft, a tutoring agency that specializes in teaching people with developmental and learning challenges. Shelley is certified in the Orton-Gillingham Approach, which uses a multi-sensory approach for learning.

Please come and enjoy an evening out to hear technical advice, real life suggestions, learn, share, and make new friends.

*** We will have light snacks and educational reading door prizes to win!***
