The coordinators of Dysphasie Estrie’s annual summer camp are hoping that a partnership with Lennoxville’s Tierra del Fuego community will sow the seeds of success for the young people under their care.
“It was an idea that blossomed one Sunday afternoon in the garden,” Noémie Poliquin-Côté, Camp coordinator with Dysphasie Estrie, a local organization working with children who have impairments in their ability to produce and understand spoken language. “Often in school dysphasic children are set aside in projects because they need to work at a different pace,” Poliquin-Côté said. “We wanted to provide them with an opportunity to be at the head of the work.” See full story in the Wednesday, August 8 edition of The Record.
