Decoding Dyslexia – Ontario held an information session and webinar on Saturday, October 28, 2017, at Beaches Reading Clinic, featuring Dr. Norm Forman. We learned a great deal about the IEP/IPRC process and how parents can effectively advocate for their children.
Dr. Forman is a Registered Psychologist with a Doctor of Education degree who has specialized in parent/child advocacy issues for over twenty years. He is also the author of Exceptional Children Ordinary Schools: Getting the Education You Want for Your Special Needs Child. Based on his book, Dr. Forman developed Parent Advocacy Training Programs for the Tourette Syndrome Foundation of Canada and the Learning Disabilities Association of Ontario which were made available on the Web.
Dr. Forman was a member of the TDSB Special Education Advisory Committee (SEAC) for many years. He consults with parents, families and schools.
Thanks very much to Monica from Beaches Reading Clinic, and Dr. Norm Forman, for working with us to provide valuable information for parents and their children.
