What is the Learning Support Program at Lincoln School?
At Lincoln School we believe all children are different, all children learn in different ways and all children learn develop at different rates. Some students may require extra help in some subjects to be successful. Others are students who are learning English while learning regular classroom content may need assistance in language acquisition.
The Learning Support Program at Lincoln School encompasses learners of English and those students who require academic support at their grade level. The learning support specialist delivers instruction in small groups in the learning support classroom and in the grade level classroom, working closely with the classroom teacher. The learning support teacher works in collaboration with the general education teachers to create an inclusive environment that is differentiated for all students. The goal is to provide support to these learners to help them integrate fully in the mainstream classroom.
