Comp.#: 19-406 1.0 FTE French Immersion Learning Support
The Learning Support Team teacher (LST) has an inclusion mindset and uses a strength-based approach to working with schools to enable student access to curriculum learning in the classroom environment. LST support Classroom Teachers and support staff in the work of supporting the inclusion of learners exhibiting unique learning challenges who:
• are struggling with academics but have no formal Ministry designation
• meet Ministry criteria as having a Learning Disability
• are English Language Learners
This support is undertaken primarily through direct work with students, case-management responsibilities and collaborative work with teachers.
Direct Work with Students includes direct instruction that supplements efforts of classroom teachers. For example, intensive targeted instruction in reading, writing and numeracy.
Case Management responsibilities include coordinating the development and implementation of IEPs, AIPs and Student Learning Plans. This includes assessment and reporting of these goals as well as supporting student transitions and access to specialized services referrals (SLP, etc). Active case management includes working in a way that actively involves students in their planning (as appropriate) as well as their families.
Collaborative work with Classroom teachers include an emphasis upon:
• Implementing UDL strategies that build access for all learners
• implementing responsive teaching strategies specific to individual students
• implementing range of curriculum, instruction and assessment strategies and supports outlined in IEPs and AIPs
Learning Support Team teachers also work closely and collaboratively with fellow LST team members to build collective capacity. Learning Support Team teachers work collaboratively with all members of the School Based Team including Inclusion Team Teachers and school based resource room teachers.
