Welcome to You Can Teach Me.
This website offers teachers and paraprofessionals resources and information who work with students with significant intellectual and developmental disabilities.
You will find an overview of research to gain a better understanding of intellectual and developmental disabilities. In addition, you will find several creative and meaningful strategies and interventions that support the development of skills and competencies intended to promote student autonomy and self-determined behaviours geared in optimizing their potential, community participation and inclusion.
Most importantly, this website hopes to share the message that all students can learn when given the opportunity to do so.
The content will be regularly updated.
My name is Kymberley Morin and I am a Special Needs Consultant for the Eastern Townships School Board.
My interest in children with significant needs began over 30 years ago. I have had the pleasure of teaching children with intellectual and developmental disabilities at the preschool, elementary and high school levels in an inclusive setting for over 25 years.
For the past few years, I've been given the opportunity to collaborate with other professionals at the Ministry of Education, and I am presently embarking on a new adventure as a Special Needs Consultant at a school board.
I would like to thank all my colleagues who have collaborated and offered their input in creating this resource.
A very special thank you to Robin Colyer whose creative input made this project possible.
Kymberley Morin, Orthopédagogue
