Special Education

The Special Remedial programs are intended to serve the needs of those students who exhibit severe emotional, behavioural and/or social problems.

The Special Remedial programs are intended to serve the needs of those students who exhibit severe emotional, behavioural and/or social problems. These students display behaviours of an externalizing nature (e.g. aggressive and defiant behaviours).

The main goal of the program is to assist the students in managing behaviour and helping them develop coping strategies so they may return to regular classes or other appropriate programs.
