Student Services

​​Below are the programs & services offered by the Student Services team at General Vanier School:

  • Student Services
    • All students at General vanier are valued and respected members of our learning community. Our Student Services team supports all students, including those with exceptional learning needs. Students with exceptional learning needs are those who require specialized services or programming because of social/emotional, behaviour, sensory, physical, cognitive/intellectual communication, academic or special health-care needs that interfere with their learning.
    • Our student services support team includes our school administration, resource teacher/counsellor, behaviour support teacher, classroom teacher(s) and others who have responsibility for students with exceptional learning needs such as our Clinical Services (Speech and Language, Psychology, Social Work, Occupational Therapy, Aboriginal Support Teachers and Physiotherapy). The team is important in helping students to feel included and plan for their success. At times, this includes the developing and monitoring of IEPs (Individual Education Plan).
    • Our Student Services team is involved in the planning and implementation of many programs throughout the year. The team collaborates with teachers to recognize and address individual, group and whole class needs. An important aspect of Student Services is to communicate with parents and outside agencies to ensure that appropriate programming and supports are in place so that every child is successful.
  • Early Literacy Intervention and Support
    • To Support Early Reading Intervention (ERI) and Reading Recovery in Grade 1 to 4 students who require added assistance with reading and writing in LRSD's English program schools.
    • ERI adds daily reading and writing instruction for small groups of students. Interventions are designed to augment the regular classroom program and provide individual and specific practice of reading skills. With added support from the Early Literacy Support Teacher, students learn reading and writing strategies through guided practice, appropiate book selection and ongoing observation of their progress in a small group setting. This assists beginning readers to improve their reading comprehension, fluency and accuracy.
  • Skills for Living Programs (Early and Middle Years)
    • The Skills for Living Program provides and alternative setting intended for students with profound developmental and/or multiple disabilities. It offers a low student-to-teacher ratio with the support of educational assistants within a K - Grade 8 school. Individual programming encompasses the development of communication skills, social skills, physical well being and daiy life skills supported by academic skills.
  • Behaviour Support Teacher
    • Children do well if they can. - Ablon and Green, 2004
    • The positive behaviour support teacher supports parents, teachers and students with student’s social and emotional needs. Some children need to learn how to navigate the school environment. These skills are often taken for granted. Children who experience school adjustment problems are at high risk for negative developmental outcomes. Researchers have reported associations between school adjustment problems in academic and peer relations and (1) behaviour problems, (2) attention deficits and hyperactivity, (3) anxiety, (4) learning disabilities and (5) impaired cognitive ability.
    • Social skills need to be taught and children who are not doing well adjusting to school often have social skill deficits. It is the role of the positive behaviour support teacher to work with teachers and students and teach the necessary social skills in order for children to be successful. The PBS teacher also works with the Clinical Services Department to program for students who require specialized treatment.
