Wondering what to do if your child can’t read? Should children with learning disabilities stay in French Immersion? Can your child go into French immersion if he or she doesn’t speak English well?

The challenge in the delivery of French Second Language (FSL) education is to ensure that all students, no matter where they live, whatever their socio-economic background or intellectual abilities, have equal opportunity to quality and accessible French educational opportunities.

We have put together this extensive list of resources to help support parents.
