Special Education

While the primary responsibility for special needs students lies with the classroom teacher, the resources of the Special Education Resource Teacher are made available, when required.  There are a number of roles the resource teacher may serve including; 

  • providing support to the classroom teacher 
  • administering educational assessments 
  • assisting in the development and implementation of differentiated programming 
  • facilitating the Identification, Placement and Review Committee (IPRC) process 

Academic Support

A Learning Strategies course (GLE) is available in all grades to assist students identified with learning difficulties with their organizational skills and unique learning styles. 

Intensive Support Program

At Lasalle, we have a variety of intensive support programs that are not credit bearing.  Although the IPRC determines eligibility, it is the Individual Education Plan (IEP) that guides the expectations for each student. The ISP (Intensive Support Program) offers students the opportunity to learn life skills, social skills, work experience and learn functional academics appropriate to their level of ability.
