Individual Teacher Consultations
We provide individual weekly consultations with teachers via video conference. During the sessions, teachers bring forward classroom wide instructional or behavioral management issues to discuss and we provide strategies to alleviate these concerns. Alternatively, teachers can also discuss a specific student (or students) they are concerned about. Teachers meet with the same consultant week to week to maintain continuity and to facilitate follow ups on ongoing concerns.
Our team of school and clinical psychologists conduct psychoeducational assessments of preschool through to high school aged students. Our unique approach focuses on developing individual learning profiles centred on students’ strengths and needs. We provide teachers and families with specific strategies and intervention supports to meet students’ needs.
We Are Not Alone Project
The We Are Not Alone project is aimed at connecting parents of children with LD’s together through video conferencing (VC). Eight parents will sync up weekly for 10 weeks with a trained facilitator who will create a safe virtual space for parents to share their stories, learn from each other, and pose questions to the facilitator in order to find answers. Video conferencing will enable parents to attend from the comfort of their homes. Sessions will be held in the evening so that parents can be present for bedtime routines and then connect. VC will also allow members from multiple communities to interact, allowing family members to know that they are not alone in their struggles and to be provided to answers to questions they have about how to best support their child. This program is in partnership with The Northern Ontario Centre for Learning Differences (NORCLD) whose goal is to increase the capacity of existing programs and services currently provided by the Learning Disabilities Association of Sudbury (LDAS) by setting up and supporting new chapters in North Bay, Sault Ste. Marie, and Timmins. NORCLD connects families and individuals with LD’s to local services.
