LET’S TALK LD PROGRAMS: COLLEGE, VOCATIONAL, AND RESOURCE FAIRS

COLLEGE, VOCATIONAL AND RESOURCE (INCLUDING ASSISTIVE TECH) FAIRS

 

As an organization with roots in the progressive education movement, that appreciates the value of constructivism as an approach to meet the educational needs of youth with learning differences, LET’S TALK LD TM  (LTLD)  understands that our work must include creating opportunities to better prepare young people for post-secondary life.

LET’S TALK LD TM  (LTLD)  offers college, vocation, and resource fairs, to that end.  For instance, our members have expressed interest in understanding how assistive technology tools can create opportunity and allow students with learning differences to minimize the impact of the neurodevelopmental challenge and leverage their strengths and affinities.

LET’S TALK LD TM  (LTLD)  currently hosts a college fair in the Fall that includes a panel of college admissions and academic support services professionals.  In the Spring we host a vocational education fair.  Additionally, we also host an assistive technologies fair that will feature companies who have created cutting edge digital tools and other assistive technologies that are designed to support the struggling learner.
