To support and enhance the differentiated instruction that goes on in the regular classroom, the Inclusion team works with a limited number of students with special educational needs to support them with their challenges. This is either done through support within the classroom or on a pull-out basis to ensure the students benefit from the program. Collaborative planning amongst teachers is also an important part of this process.
Students are placed in this program based on detailed observations, past records, and feedback from parents and teachers. Referrals are made for further testing, should learning needs be identified during the school year. Clinical testing and therapies are not available at school and therefore the parents are required to get them done privately. For children with special educational needs, an individual learning plan is put into place using the recommendations of the test results.
Regular communication between the school and the parents takes place to monitor progress.
