LEARNING SUPPORT

For students who require and qualify for our Learning Support program, several support options are available to meet their needs:

  • Consultation with classroom teachers – Learning Support teachers regularly consult and plan with classroom teachers to strategize and implement interventions.
  • Implementation of accommodations – Students receive accommodations in the classroom that allow them to bypass a learning disability and access the grade level curriculum.
  • Small group instruction in the classroom – Learning Support teachers provide support to students in their content classrooms. The focus is on teaching strategies and skills that support students to access and learn the grade level curriculum.
  • Small group instruction in a Learning Support classroom – Some students learn best in an alternate setting where instruction is provided in small groups. In these small groups, Learning Support teachers focus on teaching remedial skills, organizational and study skills, time management, and supporting grade level content.
  • Modified curriculum – Some students with a documented disability require specialized curriculum and are provided modifications within the regular school curriculum. Modifications change the learning outcomes for students and provide an appropriately challenging curriculum at their instructional levels. Modifications are designed by the Learning Support teachers and implemented in the classroom environment.
  • 1:1 teacher assistant support – Students who require intensive support, display multiple learning challenges, and/or require extensive modifications to the curriculum may be supported by a 1:1 teacher assistant who delivers interventions planned by Learning Support and classroom teachers.
