Presentation At The University Of Regina
Jun 2, 2014 

On Monday (June 2) afternoon, Brayden and Taylor Switzer travelled to the U of R to give a presentation to the Ed. Psych 400 class. This is a class that is mandatory for all 4th year education students. Their presentation dealt with what they think teachers can do to help students on the Austism Spectrum. They came up with a top ten list of suggestions for teachers and made sure they understood that kids like them want and need to be challenged.

Mrs. Szabo, Mrs. Pachal and of course their mom made the trip to the city with the boys. Feedback from the session has been incredible.
