Learning4Success – New Resource for Students Receiving Special Education Support
As you may know, our web page www.hwdsb.on.ca/covid19 is where families will find our learning and support plan, Caring in the face of challenge: learning and support during COVID-19.
Students who receive special education support should receive appropriate accommodations where necessary and be provided with assigned work by teachers, as well as feedback or assessment. The student’s current Individual Education Plan should continue to be followed.
HWDSB’s Specialized Services team has prepared additional learning supports, named Learning4Success, which are tailored for students with Autism Spectrum Disorder or a Developmental Disability who are on an alternative program. These materials are for family use and may be used to supplement instruction provided by the classroom teacher. There are examples of learning tasks that can be done at home. Tasks can be adjusted to accommodate learners ages and interests, with the understanding that they may not be a perfect fit for each learner.
We continue to enhance and develop Learning4Success to meet the needs of students and families. You will see additional videos and resources posted weekly, so please visit the site often.
