1. Resource Program
When students are experiencing difficulty in the classroom, our resource team works with the classroom teachers to individualize a plan to allow students to overcome academic, social or behavioural difficulties. Together, the Resource team and the classroom teacher will discuss some of the methods and strategies from which the student would benefit. Intervention may be in the form of one-to-one, small group, direct instruction or indirect support within the classroom. Parents are always an important source of information to help with an appropriate intervention.
2. Clinical Support Services
The CSS is an educational support service agency which provides specialized help for school children in collaboration with school personnel teams. Our multidisciplinary team consists of:
Psychologist - Ms. Erika Mainagra
Social Worker - Ms. Shelley Gallagher
Reading Clinician - M Philippe Morin-Fournier
Speech and Language Pathologist - Mrs. Bev Geddes
The CSS works directly with our team in consultation with students and staff. At all times, parents are involved in the process.
Our school offers an Integrated Special Education program which provides assistance to students with a variety of special needs. Classrooms receive supports from the Special Education Resource Team (S.E.R.Team) and/or support from educational assistants within the classroom. Regular meetings are scheduled to discuss needs, develop individualized programs and monitor student progress.
