Our team provides professional education consultation and advocacy services throughout British Columbia. Using a collaborative approach, we observe students and develop educational programming to support their individual needs. We are available for short and long term support and provide advocacy services to ensure education adaptations and recommendations are implemented.
Our team observes the learning and behaviour strategies of individual students as the key to understanding how they learn and what supports they need. We use careful observation to provide insight into the learning style, attention capacity and optimal participation levels for each student.
We visit the student’s schools, homes, and communities to observe students in their daily interactions with people and environments. We take note of the adaptations already in place, the stretches the child has to make to access services and the ways that they meet success.
In our observations, we are looking for what is already working and what needs to be changed. With this information, we consult with the support team to design a program that is best suited to the student.
Observation services include:
- School, home, and community observation
- Review of student performance
- Audit of curricula, resources, and learning environment
- Analysis of individualized programming
We know that individualized education is the foundation of inclusive classrooms and special education services. Determining the best adaptations and learning strategies takes time and careful observation combined with full team consultations.
Our team offers consultation services to individuals and organizations who are trying to determine the best education pathway for themselves or the student in their care. We work with the whole team to design the most individually appropriate plan for the student, ensuring short and long-term success.
We also work with you to identify the services available within the school system, community and government agencies in your area.
Consultation services include
- Gathering information from educators, support staff, students, parents and guardians
- Recommendations for curricula, and delivery methods (IEP)
- Advising on the effective use of digital learning tools
- Provision of comprehensive written reports
Advocacy is an important step in securing adaptation support for students in the classroom and the wider community. Our team is available to accompany you or your student to an IEP meeting or other education support meetings when requested.
In addition, our team provides advocacy coaching for adults and students to help develop the language and communication skills needed to properly advocate in education and workplace settings.
When in-person and online support is preferred, we will take the time to help you work through the pieces, understand what your needs are, and then provide you with resources, including accompanying you to meetings, to make this easier to navigate.
Advocacy services include:
- Attend meetings to represent the student’s needs
- Provide workshops and instructional materials to improve lesson delivery
- Ensure that recommendations are implemented
- Ongoing support as requested
student advocacy, and additional support as requested.
