Skills for Living Program

​The Skills for Living Program (SLP) is designed to support students who have exceptional needs. It provides a classroom environment intended for individuals with significant or multiple disabilities. The Individual Educational Plan (IEP) serves as the basis for an individualized curriculum for students who do not benefit from provincial curricula.  Individualized programming consists of educational experiences that are functionally appropriate and highly individualized to take into account the unique learning requirements of the students.  Some activities occur in the community. The students work on their IEP goals and do not acquire the credits required to graduate. Upon graduation the students receive a Certificate of Completion for an Individualized Seniors Years Program, and they are eligible to attend the school's convocation ceremony.

 

The SLP aims to provide an environment which accommodates each student's rate of learning, development, and behaviour. Strategies and activities are implemented according to the unique abilities and needs of each student. Goals and activities occur in a variety of domains which might include:

  • daily living (e.g. kitchen skills, shopping)
  • academic (literacy / numeracy),
  • communication,
  • social,
  • community,
  • personal care,
  • physical well-being,
  • leisure and recreation, and
  • vocational.

 

Entrance into this program is through the divisional Student Services Department.
