The Literacy Program assists students with low average to average ability who have significant academic delays. The Literacy Program helps students make academic gains and assists them to develop important lifelong skills.
In Literacy classrooms, teachers carefully organize the learning process to ensure that lessons are clear and frequently involve visual aids and active learning. Students practice skills, first with guidance, and then on their own. Staff provide small group and individual instruction, support and ongoing feedback to guide learning. Within academic studies, students are taught work habits, personal and social skills. They use different strategies to learn, remember, co-operate, organize and cope. Student growth is tracked carefully and programming is adjusted to meet individual needs.
