The Bear's Den - Learning Disabilities in School

May 08, 2017

The discovery of a learning disability at school can feel overwhelming to parents and their child, but parents do have options. Watch BearPaw Media's latest educational video, Learning Disabilities in School.

Parent Rights

In Alberta, the law gives parents the right to make decisions about their child’s education. This video will help guide parents through the assessment process, the development of an Individualized Program Plan (IPP) and how to work with the school’s recommendations for the child. Through this journey, parents and school staff will learn how to build on the child’s strengths to achieve success in school.

A teacher may suspect a learning disability if the child consistently struggles with any of the following:

  • learning
  • physical ability
  • behaviour
  • emotional control
  • communication
