Guest Speaker:

Dawn Tait, Program Officer, Academic Assistance for Adults with Developmental Disabilities (AAADD).

AAADD offers adults with developmental disabilities the opportunity to further develop their academic skills while building social skills within a college environment.
AAADD offers classes in English, math, current events, life skills, computers and job search.

In English, students develop skills and abilities in reading, spelling, grammar, and comprehension.

In math, students develop skills in numbers, computation, geometry, problem solving, time, money and measurements.

In current events, students use newspapers to discuss local, national, and international news as well as learn topics related to Canadian and world geography.

In life skills, students explore subjects related to personal safety and relationships.

In computers, students become familiar with various computer operations and complete projects using MSWord, MSPowerPoint and MSPublisher as well as the Internet.

In job search, students learn the steps needed to enter the workforce, from job availability, to resume writing and interview skills.   Students also participate in hands-on work experience in class. Students may also participate in work placements within and outside the College.
