Our Learning Support Department provides students from 18 months to 18 years old with the opportunity and encouragement to flourish within their environment. Students at UWCT are part of an inclusive learning community that is both respectful and accepting. We acknowledge that each child has their own unique strengths, educational approaches and learning styles.
Classroom teachers collaborate with our Learning Support specialists, parents and students to develop strategies and programmes that assist learners in meeting their goals. Students receive support in class and through pull-out support, depending on each student’s needs.
Additional support services from an Occupational Therapist, Educational Psychologist, and Counsellors are also available at UWCT.
Our Media Centre is a learning and collaborative space for students to use Monday – Friday, where the community has access to a wide variety of international and online resources. It is managed by an experienced librarian who supports students in their research projects, and Staff with finding new resources.
The school has access to an experienced Pediatric Occupational Therapist who can support a child’s development relating to sensory motor skills, cognitive and perceptual integration, and psychosocial skills. Children may exhibit difficulties in gross and fine motor coordination, attention span, visual perception, illegible handwriting, self-management and coping strategies, and social skills. The Occupational Therapist can assess and work with students, if deemed appropriate, to enhance these essential skills necessary for academic readiness and to be successful in both a home and school environment.
