Student Support

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.
