We are the Academic Resource Committee, which supports students with learning disabilities and other learning differences, and we're also parents of students with learning disabilities at Northern. Our mandate is to inform, engage, educate and support parents of students with learning disabilities and other learning differences. We run a variety of meetings and events throughout the year, and we advocate within and beyond the school on topics that are relevant to these students and their education, development and well-being.
ARC is where you can:
