1:4 and 1:7 Classes

This program is ideal for students who are preparing to learn in a small group, and who require additional support with appropriate peer interaction, classroom skills, as well as foundation academic skills. Our curriculum is developmentally-based with reference to the Ontario Curriculum goals. In the classroom, there is focus on explicit lessons and activities that will develop a foundation of social and emotional skills that are essential for children. Our high instructor-to-child ratio allows us to meet the needs of each child, while providing them with the opportunity to develop secure relationships that will prepare them for many school years to come.

Additional support for students is available through our Support Level program, which allows students to receive additional shared support within the classroom.

Who is this program for?
This program is for children ages 4-18 years who are ready to engage in a small class size (1 teacher : 4 students) without full-time individual support. Expressive and receptive language skills are developed each day through speech activities, teacher modelling, and social role-play.

In the Academic Program, academics and social skills are combined into one developmentally-based curriculum. Students will work towards appropriate academic goals as set by the Ontario Provincial Standards and each student will have an Individual Education Plan to encompass his or her academic and social/emotional needs.

Students will be placed within an age- and developmentally-appropriate class and will participate in a small classroom setting (1 teacher : 7 students) while receiving the individual attention, classroom modifications, and individually-tailored curriculum necessary to reach their highest academic and social potential.

Additional support for students is available through our Support Level program, which allows students to receive additional shared support within the classroom.

The Need for Individualized Education
For some children, school can be stressful and cause a lot of anxiety. With the academic and social demands that come with school, it is easy for an anxious child to become overwhelmed and even withdrawn. As a result, these students are unable to cope in a busy classroom environment and they begin to dislike school and learning. There are other students who enjoy school but require more individual support to help them achieve their best and to prepare them for their high school years.
