Remediation Special Education

Exceptional Students

Sometimes the school system cannot offer special education support, or the quality of the intervention is not up to standard. We offer a viable alternative. We develop and implement a comprehensive Individual Education Plan. Lessons are usually arranged on a 1:1 basis. Flexible lesson dates are arranged in consultation with the family.

Topics Include:

  • Remedial Math
  • Remedial Reading
  • Writing Workshops
  • Study Skills / Organization
  • Coping Skills
  • Therapies
  • Life Skills

 

Remedial Math
Math-U-See provides a firm foundation in mathematics for students struggling in mathematics and with special needs. Teachers are provided the tools, skills and training needed to present an explicit, structured, systematic, and cumulative program using multi-sensory teaching techniques. Since 2004, Math-U-See has been working with Special Education Teachers to teach students who are struggling in math or have special needs. These students are showing tremendous improvements and are closing the achievement gap. Math-U-See unique approach targets each individual student and focuses on their needs.

 

Remedial Reading
SMT – The Simultaneous Multi-sensory Teaching Program is a unique language remediation system designed to satisfy the needs of students with dyslexia of all age groups. Although they have normal or above average intelligence, people with dyslexia generally obtain lower grades with conventional teaching methods. They are more receptive to programs such as S.M.T. which is based on a multi-sensory approach, and which simultaneously uses visual, auditory, tactile and kinesthetic modalities. S.M.T. stresses reading accuracy during its initial lessons and then emphasizes reading comprehension. All material is presented in brief, sequential steps which allow students to develop self-confidence. Students always progress at their own pace.

 

Writing Workshops

In order to succeed in every area of life, children must hone the skills needed to communicate confidently and effectively. “Whether the student is an eager learner or a reluctant writer, Excellence in Writing will give you the tools you need to confidently write well, think clearly, and express themselves eloquently and persuasively.”

 

Study Skills/Organization
Students learn study and work strategies to keep them organized. Skills/Advanced Skills for School Success is a research-based program that transforms “strategy-free” students into successful students who:

  • Exhibit positive classroom behaviours, manage time, and organize assignments
  • Make effective use of text and reference books and interpret graphic aids
  • Study for and approach tests with confidence
  • Gather information, take notes, and respond in class
