The special education services at Osler School are designed for students whose progress may be impeded by significant academic, organizational, behavioral and/or physical challenges. The special education programs are structured to help students (individually or in small groups) who require remedial activities and to provide consultative support (ideas, materials, techniques and teaching materials) to classroom teachers and educational associates. The special education teachers serve in a consultative-collaborative role by providing classroom teachers with materials, technological supports, alternative methodology and suggested modifications to meet the needs of exceptional children in their classroom. Children who work with the special education teachers are identified for assistance by parents, teachers, health professionals and/or school consultants. The assistance provided varies according to the individual needs of the child.
