Secondary Strategies is a program designed
for students who have a significant neurologically-based learning
disability which affects the consistency of their academic work. The
program offers a supportive environment for students whose needs may not
be met in a regular program with necessary adaptations.
Program Objectives include:
- individualized or small group instruction with a focus on functional skill;
- providing students with a wide range of experiences designed to
increase self-esteem and feelings of success, as well as a social skills
program to develop interpersonal skills and independence;
- community-based instruction.
Students are considered appropriate for this program when they:
- have average potential and exhibit an uneven cognitive profile
- have a neurological impairment which affects their consistent performance in cognitive functioning
- perceptual motor development, language application, social maturity and ability to work independently
- need extensive program modifications
Secondary Strategies program referrals must be submitted to the Screening Committee.
