Each year, the BC Council for Exceptional Children celebrates the achievements of children and youth with exceptionalities through the BC CEC Yes I Can! Awards program.
We're very proud to announce that DSRF student Clara Driedger was chosen as a recipient of the award for academics in reading (grade 5). Way to go, Clara!
Clara’s mom attributes her success to the many hours she has spent at DSRF receiving specialized reading instruction. The school does a great job reviewing the practice materials with Clara, so DSRF and Clara’s school are working in partnership. Clara’s mom says “We are grateful for the program and the wonderful teachers at DSRF for encouraging Clara’s love of reading."
We are so pleased to be able to help empower Clara to achieve her full potential!
Thank you very much to the John Hardie Mitchell Family Foundation, which has generously invested $1,000 in DSRF's educational programs for students with Down syndrome! We are so grateful for your support!
