Special Needs Program
A Special and Additional Needs Program is provided and coordinated by the Learning Centre Manager. This teacher’s role is to assess the students’ needs, to monitor their progress and to assist other teachers in developing and modifying appropriate learning programs and materials for students. Special needs students have the opportunity to participate in a variety of programs and other tuition and support according to individual needs. There is a strong emphasis on skills for life and personal and social development.
