A BOOST TO MY SUCCESS. Promote academic perseverance.
"To equip children, parents and teachers, and to accompany them in a process of mutual aid is our priority."
The main objective of our program, A boost to my success, is to promote the academic perseverance of Verdun’s children presenting cognitive and/or emotional challenges that impact their learning, through individual interventions in consultation, group activities and awareness, and through free access to compensatory material and tools. We rely on group accompaniment and peer-emulation to develop mutual aid links between Verdun’s children and parents.
Through this program, we are completing a public service offer that does not exist enough on the Verdun territory as far as the medico-social accompaniment of children with learning challenges is concerned. We are working closely with the school board to develop workshops within the schools of our neighbourhood.
More precisely, the “Boost to my success” program offers vulnerable Verdun primary school-age children and their families, accompanied by the Petits Renards and/or referred by partner schools :
- an offer of specialized assessments (cognitive, sensory, psychological) and personalized recommendations.
- individual and group personalized follow-up aimed at improving their learning, fostering their investment and motivation, their well-being and self-confidence in school.
- compensation material and thematic books to equip the children and their families.
- activities aimed at raising awareness and supporting those working closely with the child (parents, teachers) about learning difficulties and ways of tackling, overcoming and reducing them.
