“If a child can’t learn the way we teach, maybe we should teach the way they learn.” - Ignacio Estrada
What is the Learning Support Department?
The Learning Support Department at École comprises of a team of qualified Special Educators who work towards achieving the school’s mission of encouraging students to excel in the skills that empowers them to become independent lifelong learners.
The Learning Support Department supports the school’s policy of promoting inclusive educational practice by collaborating at various levels. The school community is sensitized about the needs of the students, their individual strengths and challenges, and suggest differentiation strategies for students’ learning needs and styles. The LSD also ensures that each student is given equal opportunities to grow holistically. The Team, when required, also collaborates with outside service agencies, and students’ families to ensure a comprehensive approach.
What services does the Learning Support Department offer students to access LSD programs?
The Learning Support Team is dedicated to offering child-centered academic support with opportunities to optimize the attributes of the learner profile. The Department provides students with skills and strategies as per their Individualised Education Plan (IEP) to accentuate their learning. This is done with a combination of a push-in as well as a pull-out model which helps the students access the curriculum. In addition to the above-mentioned support, special accommodations and authorization from boards are also sought, like a reader, writer, laptop etc. so that the assessment conditions do not put students at a disadvantage.
Confidentiality is our TOP priority!
ÉMWS, as a whole school, emphasizes on students’ right to privacy. The Learning Support Department strives to deliver absolute confidentiality for all the students who avail services from the Department.
