The Social Development Class offers a small protected setting for students with severe emotional difficulties. Prior to placement, students may have been given a clinical psychiatric diagnosis.
Students are appropriate for placement in this program when they:
- meet the Ministry criteria for moderate behaviour - “R” or intensive behaviour support- “H”
- have emotional or behavioral problems not resultant from intellectual impairment
Social Development referrals must be submitted to the Case Manager for Behaviour.
Students are reviewed on a regular basis and if a change in placement is recommended a referral is submitted to the Screening Committee. Placement in a regular classroom is recommended when students have developed compensatory skills to a level which will allow them to function successfully
