Join us online via our YouTube channel for our first ever round table discussion with current Eaton Arrowsmith cognitive and academic teachers, EA alumni students and their parents as we discuss life before,during and especially after Eaton Arrowsmith! Everything you’ve ever wanted to know and more about the transition to and from Eaton Arrowsmith, from the perspective of those who know it best – our wonderful teachers and families! Have a question that isn’t being discussed? Feel free to write in during the conversation and we’ll do our best to answer it!
*Please note that the link to this conversation will not be available on the YouTube channel until just before the conversation starts, so do not worry if you check there earlier and it is not available. Also, should the timing of this conversation not suit you, that’s ok! We’ll be recording every last minute and will send it out to everyone in the coming weeks.
To get you all into the spirit and theme of our upcoming conversation, last week we had the pleasure of a visit from one of our very first EA students, Justine! She’s a Douglas College graduate and is working as a support worker with children with special needs. She said to us that the Arrowsmith Program’s impact on student achievement still amazes her – she couldn’t read before she came to us and now she can read a book in a day! She’s a big advocate for early intervention, so students do not have to struggle their whole lives and experience the emotional trauma and isolation that academic and social learning difficulties can cause. It was wonderful to see you again, Justine, and to witness how you have flourished – even though we feel old!!
Looking forward to ‘seeing’ you all online on Monday May 15th!
Sandra Heusel, Admissions and Marketing Director, for all of us at Eaton Arrowsmith
