Learning Support & Guidance

The primary goal of the SHCS Learning Support Program (LSP) is to help ensure successful learning of each student who needs additional learning support. Team planning with all the teachers involved with a student displaying learning concerns is vital.

Our Learning Support Program provides direct support to students in a number of ways. Team teaching, close planning, and coordination with regular classroom teachers, teachers of special subjects, and counselors provide a team approach to the total child’s successful learning. Service delivery includes whole class instruction, whole group instruction, individual assistance within an inclusive setting, pull out for small group or individual work, and supervision of trained volunteers who are working within our Learning Support Program.

Additionally, our learning support program provides indirect student support by providing suggestions to parents and teacher on ways to accommodate a student’s learning difficulties. Modifications/accommodations and/or interventions may be provided. Our LSP may facilitate a contractual agreement with a student to provide motivation and reinforcement. Our Learning Support Program is also available to work with professionals in the community who are working with our students to ensure a team effort in addressing learning difficulties.
