Every student has individual needs that affect how they learn. We want to meet these needs as best as we can and welcome your child at our school.
Learning support is for eligible students with learning support needs, whether mild, moderate or intensive. Parents will provide an psychoeducational evaluation indicating areas of eligibility and the Learning Support teacher will create an individual learning plan based on the results of the evaluation. We help students succeed within the regular education class and become independent learners by using the following methods:
- pull-out for individuals and small groups
Speech and Language Therapy
We provide one-to-one speech therapy at an extra charge for those of our students who may have communication disorders. Our sessions revolve around speech and language assessment as well as classroom- and home-based intervention and activities.
We offer one-on-one occupational therapy sessions for an extra charge for our students who need support with
- developing social sensitivity necessary to forming and sustaining social interaction and relationships with peers
- handwriting/fine motor skills or visual-perception skills so the child can complete written assignments
- organizing in the environment to maximize classroom participation and educational experiences
We work with teachers to adapt learning materials to facilitate successful participation. We address sensory issues by finding strategies to keep the child’s arousal level functional during school and/or making changes to the classroom environment to allow for sensory needs of the child.
