Students who require additional help are supported in our school by our Student Learning Team (SLT), which includes our administration, our resource team, Area Student Services Specialists, psychologists and educational assistants. This Student Learning Team is responsible for supporting teachers in differentiating classroom instruction, as well as accessing additional resources, materials and services for students, as deemed necessary through regular reviews at our school learning team meetings.

Programming for Cognitive Developmental Disabilities

Social Knowledge, Independent Living and Language (SKILL)

SKILL classes are for students with moderate cognitive disabilities. They are offered to students in Grades 1 - 6.

These classes help students become more independent in their home and community through the development of:

  • functional academic skills
  • communication skill
  • social skills
  • community awareness

A modified curriculum, including academic, developmental and sensory based activities is implemented based on the individual needs of each student and is designed to facilitate the growth of the whole child.

Instructional accommodations may include the use of assistive technology, augmentative communication systems, and individual and small group instruction. SKILL classes are located in various community schools and students are included within that school community. Generally, the ratio of students to staff is 4:1.
