District Based Services

District-based services are accessed through the School Based Team at your child’s school.

All district services are accessed through School Based Team utilizing Student Services Referral form and other forms outlined at the Student Services- Staff Resources link

School Psychology Services

Our district psychologists provides consultation and support for students with diverse learning needs.  Students are referred for assessments by their School Based Teams.  After an assessment has been completed on an individual student, our psychologist will collaborate with the student’s family and the school team to make recommendations for appropriate programming and interventions for that student.

Speech and Language Services

The Speech-Language Pathologists (SLPs) provide assessment, consultation and direct therapy for students who have challenges with speech, and receptive or expressive language challenges.  They also support Augmentative and Alternative Communication support for students who need significant assistance to communicate.

Hearing and Vision Services

The district has both a Teacher of the Visually Impaired, and a Teacher of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing.  These teachers provide direct support for students who have been diagnosed with a vision or hearing loss, as well as providing consultation and support for the classroom and learning services teachers at the school.  They also support the student with accessing services through provincial programs, and facilitate the loan of specialized equipment and learning resources.

Occupational Therapy and Physiotherapy Services

Our physical therapist and occupational therapist support schools by providing screening, assessment, program planning, equipment selection/adaptation and consultation for school teams.  They will help design routines and structures for students who require support with daily physical therapy work or self-regulation. They also work alongside school teams and families to facilitate referrals to outside therapists where a student requires more intensive interventions.

Occupational Therapy

The occupational therapist (OT) provided collaborative consultation with school based teams to support students’ self-regulation and motor skills.

Individual assessment is used to deepen understanding of the students challenges after classroom based strategies have been initiated.
