These include the areas of: academic development, behaviour autonomy, social competency, and transition planning for a variety of programs.
Student service teachers teach students through the lens of the SELF (Social Emotional Learning Framework) where students learn to have an awareness of themselves and others. They develop self-management and relationship skills along with responsible decision making.
