Learning Services at Parkland
The learning services team is made of the Integration Support, Learning Assistance, Behaviour Support and Counselling Departments. Collectively, the seven of us have over 100 years of experience assisting students will their learning, social and emotional needs. In addition to the above teachers, we have a stellar group of Educational Assistants who provide in class and individual support.
Although we work to support all students, the Integration and Learning Assistance teachers are responsible for students with a special education designation. We work with your child, your family and any outside agencies to ensure that your child's program fits their learning, social and emotional needs. As a team, we support all students and run the Learning Centre, a supported block where all student can get assistance with their course work.
Our model of service ensures that your child will get the learning accommodations that they are entitled to. Our first question is “What is in the best interests of the student?” and we build programming and supports from there. Our vision and philosophy place the student first and as a result, our person centred planning helps us to give your child a successful educational experience. We have, and continue to successfully support individuals with: Learning Disabilities, Autism, Chronic Health Impairments, Physical Disabilities and all other exceptionalities. Parkland is known for our excellent Special Education services.
