Learning Assistance Centres (LACs) are designed for students who are in Grades 1-12 and who have severe emotional or behavioural disorders (EBD). Some of these students exhibit behaviour that requires intensive support and intervention.
The major goal of the programs is to help the students develop the social, self-management, self-control and problem-solving skills that are necessary to re-integrate into the regular classroom and community. Some of the students may also have a modified academic curriculum.
