Class Structure

The programming offered to students attending classes within the Learning Centre is delivered according to the goals and outcomes indicated on the students' Individualized Program Plan or IPP.  An IPP is developed in consideration of the student's strengths and challenges.  The outcomes in the IPP form the foundation for the evaluation of student progress.  Parents are provided an opportunity to clarify information about the students strengths and challenges and help decide on future program planning.  Throughout the year, your child's IPP will be reviewed and modifications or changes may be made if necessary.

Classroom Instruction

Instruction is delivered by the classroom teacher and supported by educational assistants working within the classroom.  Depending on the learning requirements of the student, the following services and/or programs may also be incorporated into the students' IPP:  Speech Language-Pathology, Occupational Therapy, Physitherapy, and Atlantic Provinces Special Education Authority (APSEA) to name a few.
