Through direct engagement with students and educators, the Student Support Team, helps school teams develop an enhanced capacity to support students with challenging behaviour.
The Student Support Team implements programs and strategies, including supporting educators with an enhanced understanding of causes and how to respond to challenging behaviour through observation in classrooms and consultation with school teams.
The Student Support Team partners with school staff in sharing information between families and all relevant partners within a school community to better support students as they develop skills and strive for academic and social success at school.
The Student Support Team responds to requests from school teams and administrators and to referrals from Learning Services department staff. The SST works in a collaborative capacity with educational assistants, educators and administrators to support student learning and success.
