As a Catholic education community, we believe that every child who comes to us is a unique individual, created in the image and likeness of God. We have a moral purpose to understand and support students in their learning. Programs and services for students must be personalized, precise, and guided by a continuous cycle of assessment for learning, leading to success for all students.
Support Services personnel, as part of Family of Schools and/or the Special Education and Support Service Department, are collaborating with educators, in particular, with the classroom teacher, to ensure that all students with diverse learning needs and/or who are at risk academically, physically, socially, emotionally, and behaviorally, are supported through differentiated learning experiences that are informed by timely, appropriate, assessments, supports and interventions.
Support Services Staff in Dufferin-Peel may include:
- Child and Youth Workers
- Educational Resource Workers
- Psychology Staff
- Social Work Staff
- Speech/Language/Hearing/Vision Staff
- Other Para-Professional and/or Professional Staff
We endeavor to build the capacity of multi-disciplinary school teams and support of classroom practice where each participant may be an agent of hope and reflection of our gospel values, to nourish, to sustain and to grow every student’s ability to achieve according to God’s plan. Through our successes, our students will be better prepared to be a transforming presence in our schools and in our world.
