For almost a quarter of a century, Copian (the former NALD) has been an innovative leader in connecting Canadian literacy and learning organizations, in both official languages, to information, tools, expertise and each other, through the use of technology.
Copian’s Feature of the Month gives us the opportunity to shine the spotlight on a new initiative, a document, organization, program, event or website that we’d like to recognize for its contributions to learning and essential skills in Canada. (See also our archived features which go back to September 2008)
Our feature this month shines the spotlight on a Christmas story submitted to Copian for publication at this joyous time of year.
Donna van Esch of Hamilton, Ontario, has written a heartwarming Christmas story with heart, humour and flair. With assistance from talented illustrators, she has been able to show how much can be accomplished by people with disabilities. Donna is a client of deaf/blind literacy specialist Katey Walker who works with CNIB in Hamilton.
