TEIR is a short term, intensive program for students in their grade 2 year who have been identified with a significant delay in the acquisition of literacy skills.
The focus of TEIR is to provide a differentiated learning setting that will facilitate the acquisition of literacy skills. TEIR provides some consultative services, as well as in-service to school teams. Schools referring students to TEIR must be committed to attending these sessions.
TEIR applications are reviewed by the TEIR Screening Committee twice a year; May and December. There are two intakes per school year, with each cohort attending for 16 weeks, then students return to their home school. Referrals are to be submitted to the District Case Managers.
