Special Education


Resource Program 

The Resource Department at McLuhan provides service to students who are identified as exceptional, as well as, those who are not identified but who need academic assistance to ensure school success.  We offer credit courses in Learning Strategies for students who need to improve their learning skills such as studying for tests, note-taking, reading from a text book, and organizational skills. The resource room is available to individuals or groups of students who need assistance with assignments or tests. Resource students may be sent to the room from their regular classes at the teacher’s discretion for extra time, use of the computer for writing/editing, and/or re-teaching of concepts. A resource teacher is available in the room to see students for extra support during the school day. Students may also drop in on their lunch period, before and after school.

Life Skills

This program is based on expectations which are outside of the Ontario Secondary School curriculum. The focus of this alternative program is on providing opportunities for integration, developing functional academic skills as well as skills for independent living and preparing for the world of work.  Please see our ISP page for Information about Life Skills Programming.
