Research at Western – An email about new research location

Subject: FW: Opening Oct. 1 2017: The Faculty of Education’ s Child and Youth Development Clinic

 

Please see the attached information, but the sum is that there is a new training clinic opening that will provide sliding scale services of both psychology and speech language pathology.  The clinic will provide assessment and treatment – individual and group.

 

From the attached letter:

 

The overarching purpose of the CYDC is threefold:

 To provide in-depth interdisciplinary and evidence-based training to Doctoral and Master’s students;

 To provide the highest quality, affordable, and culturally sensitive services to children and youth ages 3 to 18 years; and,

 To advance evidence-based psychological, education, and language research.

 

If you have questions, please let me know.  I know a bit about the planning around this, but we could likely find additional answers as needed.  Please also note that the clinic does not open until the Fall of this year.

Shots Fired in a Holiday Inn Hotel – 855 Wellington South

When it comes to human trafficking, the police just put out an announcement saying if you see/hear anything suspicious at a hotel/motel to let them know.

Today I read that there were shots heard at 855 Wellington which is a Holiday Inn. That’s suspicious for a hotel, wouldn’t you think?

Here is the link to the police report.
