October is recognized throughout the world as Dyslexia Awareness Month! Locally, we are pleased to share that the City of Vancouver has again accepted our request to proclaim this month as Dyslexia Awareness Month.
Fraser Academy is the first K-12 school in Canada to receive an Orton-Gillingham Academy (OGA) accreditation.
As a result of my training, when I meet with parents who are concerned about their child’s reading, spelling or writing difficulties, I am able to describe and explain the specific skills that need to be supported.
Children with dyslexia learn differently, which means they need their teachers to take a different approach.
Executive Function (EF) is an area of focus at Fraser Academy. The new remote learning environment looks very different from in-person instruction and presents new EF challenges for students.
