The new school year is just a few weeks away. That’s why students with ADHD, and their parents, should be taking this time to prepare for what the classroom has in store. SNOW, or the Special Needs Ontario Window, is a web site project managed by the Inclusive Design Research Centre located on Richmond Street in downtown Toronto near the University of Toronto, which is also a partner. The site offers a wide range of resources and information for students and parents with learning disabilities, including those associated with ADHD.
The site offers resources for teachers, parents and students with links to helpful information and other organizations that provide support. In addition, SNOW sponsors a number of educational workshops and seminars both live and through on-line options. There are videos, articles and news all aimed at helping and educating students with disabilities. For those who are interested, there are bulletin boards and discussion forums. Some of the information from previous workshops is also available in an archived format for later viewing.
Although not focused exclusively on ADHD, many of the topics and resources can be helpful for teachers, students and parents. Many who suffer from ADHD also have learning disabilities. The SNOW web site has a wealth of information on these topics.
