Secondary: Social Development

Program Description 

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. 

Student Profile 
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

Referral Process

Social Development referrals must be submitted to the Case Manager for Behaviour.
