Learning Assistance - Lifeskills

The Learning Assistance/Life Skills class is a district program for students with special needs, who would benefit from a more supported program. There is a teacher and two support staff in the class. The focus of the program is to help students develop the following:

· develop literacy and numeracy skills required for daily living

· build student confidence and self- esteem

· provide work experience opportunities for older students

· prepare students for post- secondary options 

· promote the development of social skills

· promote the development of independence at home, community and at school


Students exit with a school leaving certificate. Referrals come from elementary or secondary to Learning Services at the Vancouver School Board.
