Resource Services

Since 1975, St. George’s has served both locally and nationally as a leader in providing support services for children. Resource Services exists as a part of St. George's to assist students with learning, academic, and/or speech/language difficulties. Our team of Resource specialists, working in partnership with classroom teachers, provides students with a fully integrated program to help our students find individual success. 

Students receive their primary instruction within the regular classroom, attending Resource sessions for an additional fee in groups of two or three students, for one to five sessions weekly. The number of sessions a student attends, as well as assessment of fees, is determined by each student’s needs. Resource teachers work with parents to develop a Resource Services Student Education Plan (SEP), which identifies specific goals/objectives to address deficit areas. They also work to educate students as to their individual learning profiles, to help them better understand their strengths and weaknesses, and to encourage them to become self-advocates. Students are encouraged that through hard work and application of skills, they can achieve their goals.

Early intervention is given top priority at St. George's. Resource specialists screen children to determine the source of classroom difficulties, create academic intervention programs to be implemented by the teachers, and make referrals for further evaluation when necessary. Our goal is for students to leave the program with confidence, the ability to self-advocate and with a wealth of strategies to ensure success throughout their academic career.
