An integrated school-family-partner approach to equip and support young people with learning disabilities is a success factor, according to the experience of Michaël St-Onge-Marceau and Sabrina Boisclair, of the Educational Boutique.
In this interview filmed for the CréaCamp focused on inclusive education, Sabrina Boisclair and Michaël St-Onge-Marceau talk to us about the approach of the Educational Boutique, which is notably one of the major partners in the realization of the special issue of École branchée, “Towards inclusive education” (at download for free here).
The Educational Boutique specializes in providing advice on the deployment of technological assistance tools to support the education of young people with one or more learning disabilities. In addition to selling various products, its staff offers a software installation service, as well as training and support for young people and families.
It is important that family and school are on the same wavelength when it comes to a child's desire and possibilities for success, underlines Michaël St-Onge-Marceau. After all, maximizing the use of a tool reap the greatest benefits, both at home and at school.
As a trainer, Sabrina Boisclair loves to see how different combinations of tools and support functions will be able to meet the specific needs of the young people she supports. “When you manage to close the loop and move from tools to efficient uses, it's very stimulating,” she explains.
"It's nice for a school to invite parents who will accompany their children with homework to use their material," says Michaël St-Onge-Marceau. Indeed, when we talk about inclusive education, it can spill over outside the classroom, especially at home.
It is all this aspect that the Educational store accompanied. To discover by listening to the interview!
