The Student Support Services Team (SSST) screens, determines services, and monitors referred students whose significant social, emotional, behavioural, or academic differences have been noticed by class or subject teachers.
Following a set referral procedure, team members assess the student’s needs, through consultation, observation and testing. Then a team recommendation is made regarding the specialist and the type of support the student needs to develop to their fullest potential.
The Student Support department consists of:
- Learning Support
- School Counselling
- College Counselling
- an on-site occupational therapist (independently contracted)
- an on-site speech therapist (independently contracted)
- two on-site speech therapists and one occupational therapist (independently contracted)
- School Nurses
The SSST also liaises with other outside specialists and therapists in order to provide the widest array of services possible for ISH families.
