Special Education at Pipestone
Students with special needs are fully included in the regular program with support (where necessary) for program delivery. Modifications can also be made within the classroom to allow students of varying skill and ability levels to achieve success while integrated with age-appropriate peer groups.
Our inclusion program models a collaborative co-teaching model where there is a shared responsibility between the regular education and the Learning Support Teacher (LST). The LST is responsible for coordination of all services for students with special needs. This may include speech-language services, physical therapy services, consultations with a behaviour specialist or arranging for an educational assessment. Students both gifted and special needs receive age-appropriate academics, support services, and necessary adaptations and/or modifications.
