French Immersion and HI Student
Hi all
I am trying to find some supporting documentation for not placing a hearing impaired child into French Immersion so that I might be able to convince the parents to change their minds. Does anyone know of any resources that would help me? (Boy had SN loss, moderate, not aided until age 3, but his sister is in the Cadre program - parents are wanting French for both kids)

Greetings to our colleagues,

Please be advised to read Dr. van Gurp's announcement in the midst of teacher's strike. Please spread that announcement to your colleagues nearby because some of the registrants do not have email address on their application form. Keep you posted further after the CAEDHH-BC Executive Board will make a final decision to reschedule the conference to the next winter date. Thank you. Cheers,
Gregory Desrosiers
