Time: 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The First Nations, Métis and Inuit education team is once again offering a series of virtual gatherings for EIPS families of First Nations, Métis or Inuit children. We look forward to continuing the conversation from last school year and welcoming new families to our virtual circle. These gatherings are an opportunity for First Nations, Métis and Inuit parents and guardians to come together to make connections, create a supportive environment for dialogue, share hopes and ideas for their children within the EIPS family and learn what’s happening around the Division. We’re grateful to Elder Wilson Bearhead for attending our virtual gatherings last school year and agreeing to open each of our gatherings again this year. It’s truly an honour and a privilege to be guided by Elder Wilson, and we hold our relationship with him close to our hearts.

Speech-Sound Development and Strategies
Audience: Parents/Caregivers

Does your child have some speech-sound errors that impact how well they’re understood? Developing clear speech, for some children, is a gradual process. As children's speech develops, the number and types of errors they make changes. Many parents have questions about their child's speech-sound errors and what they can do to support the development of clear speech. This interactive online session, hosted by EIPS speech-language pathologists, will review what typical speech-sound development looks like and how to incorporate helpful strategies throughout your child’s day.
