Special Education

IMG_6517The Special Education Program consists of a team of facilitators who develop programs and provide supports to educators in First Nations schools who work with special needs children. The team includes a special needs/disability specialist, speech and language pathologist, reading clinician, and deaf and hard-of-hearing facilitator. These staff work with the schools to establish a school plan that will be implemented throughout the school year.

In addition MFNERC’s special education facilitators work with the community to provide training, assessment and educational resources and materials. Programs to meet the specific needs of diverse learners have also been developed, such as The Alphabag Program.

The Special Education Program also provides support to resource teachers in the areas of:

  • FASD
  • non-violent crisis intervention
  • innovative methods and strategies for teaching special needs students
  • special education planning
  • training to use specific assessment tools
  • resource materials

Ongoing research and assessment identifies the growing demand to provide services to children with special needs. The Special Education Program continues to adapt and grow to meet these challenges.
