At the elementary level, we work with the children on an individual basis three to four times a week depending on the grade level. Students are supported either in the regular classroom or they come to the learning centre where they receive 1:1 instruction and work in small groups.
Most often, elementary support is focused on math and literacy skills, however individual goals are tailored to each student’s needs through regular conferencing with the classroom teacher.
At times a student is enrolled in the ISA Elementary School who needs more support than can be provided by the school’s resources. In this situation and based on administrative recommendation, a teaching assistant may be employed to work with the student in the elementary classroom. The expense of the assistant is typically met by the parent’s employer.
