ELC Student Support Services

Children can listen

But also talk

Children can learn

But also teach

Children build

But also invent

Children can do

But also think

Loris Malaguzzi in Image of the Child

ELC respects the right of every child to be educated.We believe, as Loris Malaguzzi believed that teachers who believe that all children can learn, view teaching as a process of discovering each child’s secret. In the process of discovery, we work collaboratively with families to follow an inclusive approach to learning and to the best of our ability will include children with special rights and abilities. In this endeavour we provide Learning Support, Speech Language Therapy, and English as an Additional Language instruction.

Learning Support is provided to remediate and or compensate for difficulties in Reading, Writing and Mathematics. We provide therapy using Lindamood-Bell Programs, which include the Lips Program, Seeing Stars, On Cloud Nine and Visualizing and Verbalizing.

Social and Emotional Therapy is offered to support children whose learning experiences are impacted by social and emotional difficulties.

English as an Additional Language is offered to support children as they acquire English as an additional language to support listening, speaking, reading and writing.

We support our in house services by contracting the services of outside providers, who are qualified specialists in Assessment and Program development for Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy, Play Therapy, Social and Emotional Therapy and Learning Intervention.
