Learning Resources

Hello and welcome to Hayden’s Learning Resource webpage. We are glad that you stopped by.

Meet our dedicated team. The Special Education Resource Teachers (SERTs) are here to help. We support students with learning needs so each student can have a positive high school experience and perform their best. Some of the areas we can provide support are:

  • Support students with confidence building and self advocacy skills

  • Support students to develop strong learning skills, including time management and organization

  • Support students with course pathway planning as well as future planning beyond high school

  • Meet with students to discuss and update Individualized Education Plans (IEPs)

  • Support teachers to implement accommodations to promote student learning

  • Teaching students to effectively use assistive technology such as Google Read & Write, EquatIO and other tech to assist with daily school work completion.

  • Support students with academic pathways/programming / course planning / post-secondary planning

  • Transitioning of students with special needs to pre-/post-secondary education
