Social Emotional Learning Centre (SELC)

Social Emotional Learning Centre (SELC)

The Social Emotional Learning Centre (SELC) provides support for elementary students to acquire social, emotional and behavioural skills. The centre provides a short term (approximately one term) part-time opportunity for students to learn strategies for self-regulation, social skills, executive functioning and self-advocacy that they can utilize back in their home school environment.
