Learning Success Program

Support for Students with Learning Differences

At RLC we believe all students are capable of learning. We understand the challenges that can come with learning, especially when attention does not adequately respond to individual learning preferences and differences. For students identified with a learning difference we offer a Learning Success Program designed to achieve optimal levels of skill mastery in order to prepare them for post–secondary programs.

Our program takes a nurturing approach, concentrating on developing self-discipline, self-advocacy, organization and autonomy. If necessary, extensive use of technology is used, including text-to-voice, and voice-to-text software. Overall, students are accommodated by learning strategies at the Gr. 9 and 10 level, and beyond this a Managed Learning module is offered.
