Program Summary

The SOAR Post-Secondary program is a small-group college and university transition support program
for students in Grade 11 and 12+ with a diagnosed, identified, or suspected learning disability.

This program aims to prepare students for the transition to post-secondary by equipping them with the necessary skills to navigate their new environment and advocate for their needs, thus fostering strong socio-emotional skills to set them up for success.

In SOAR SR. (Post-Secondary), participants work on developing self-advocacy and coping strategies, and learn about the various resources available at college and university to prepare for a positive transition to post-secondary education.

Sessions are taught using a combination of discussion, instruction, guest speakers and engaging activities.
