Special Needs

Our students are integrated in the classroom, where individual needs are appreciated and respected. Our Resource teacher collaborates closely with the teachers to provide either team-teaching in the classroom or small group instruction for students with active IEP’s.  For our youngest students (K, Cycle 1), our Early Intervention program addresses their needs.  For our older students with reading difficulties, Later Literacy techniques and the Wilson Program are used.  Our Resource teacher also coordinates volunteers to work with small groups of students during classes.  Our psycho educator is available regularly.


Social Skills

ACES uses Dr. Gordon Neufeld’s approach to promote positive social skills, as well as the Second Step Program.
