Originally published: June 7, 2016

Most students are looking forward to the end of the school year and start of summer.

The Northern Ontario Centre for Learning Differences will host an online workshop, called School's Out, Don't Count us Out.

The online tutorial for kids with learning disabilities is geared towards grades 7 and 8 students.

Over 200 students will be attending the event in person, which is at All Nations Church on St Raphael Street.

Executive director Mary-Liz Warwick says the exciting part of this one-hour workshop is that schools across Northeastern Ontario will be able to access the learning by logging on to the website at any time.

She says this is the first of several online sessions planned by the centre.
