Aspire Special Needs Resource Centre is happy to be included on the list of organizations in Central Alberta to have received assistance from the Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation. The foundation's recent donation of $4,007 will be quickly put to use in order to purchase a SMARTboard whiteboard system for our adapted EASE preschool program.
This technology allows us to keep our classrooms as up to date as possible. Some of the children in our programs have gross motor skill deficits and the SMART Board allows them to participate in the class activities in a way they would not otherwise be able. Large colourful pictures and interactive 'touch' programs are used to help our teachers create lesson plans that work with the different learning abilities of our children.
We are very grateful to the Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation for this wonderful gift!
