Program, Focus & Approach

Student Learning Team

The School Learning Team (SLT) provides assistance to children who have been identified as requiring additional support and strategies. The SLT is comprised of the classroom teacher, the resource teacher, and administration. Psychologists, strategists, counselors, speech, physical and occupational therapists may be involved if necessary. The classroom teacher usually initiates referrals to the School Learning Team. Parental involvement and support of SLT recommendations are welcomed and encouraged. Recommendations for future interventions will be discussed. Please note: Parents will be notified before any child is referred to an itinerant staff member.
