Student Services for at Risk Individuals
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 C.S.S. are an educational support service agency which provides specialized help for school children in collaboration with school personnel teams. Our multidisciplinary team consists of:
Psychologist - Bettina Nyman
Social Worker - Mrs. Michelle Janzen
Reading Clinician - M Philippe Morin-Fournier
Speech and Language Pathologist - Mrs. Bev Geddes
The C. S. S. works directly with our team in consultation with students and staff. At all times, parents are involved in the process.
3. Diagnostic Learning Centre
This program provides short-term observation, diagnosis and explicit individual instruction in reading, writing and word study, along with the development of teaching and learning strategies related to Language Arts, organization, and independence. These strategies are then presented to each student's school team for transfer to the classroom setting.
The target group of students is in grades 3 to 6. The program is available to any student in the Winnipeg School Division who is referred by the home school and who meets the admission criteria. During the year there are four sessions of eight weeks each. Students attend either a morning or an afternoon session, spending the rest of the school day in their regular school classrooms.
DLC classes are housed at Ashland School and Wellington School. Programming can be provided in either English or French. French Sessions are offered at Ashland School as needed. Transportation is provided by van or school bus for students who attend either of the Diagnostic Learning Centre sites.
4. Special Education
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.
