The Instructional Support model:
The Instructional Support Team looks at the whole child, including strengths as well as needs. We also aim to understand how life/coping skills, life stressors and behavior affect the child’s ability to succeed in school. We are committed to identifying and celebrating each child’s strengths, which directly effects self-esteem and encourages the learning process.
