Ms. A. DiGirolamo (Program Leader)

Special Education Department

The Sir Winston Churchill Special Education Team is committed to supporting all students in a variety of ways. We pride ourselves in advocating for all students, identified or not, that may need a helping hand.

The staff in this department will communicate important information to subject-specific teachers regarding all identified students. As a team we will update the Individual Education Plan (IEP) which lists accommodations that are put in place in order to help support these students in class. This department also provides intensive support directly to students, either through a scheduled Resource Period, a scheduled by-weekly visit (grade 9 & 10), or on an informal basis as students’ needs arise.

Workshops

Assistive Technology: We will be offering a workshop for students who feel that the use of assistive technology may benefit them. The program called Premier Tools is available to all students and is installed on every DSBN computer. It may be used for daily work, on tests and/or exams. It reads, summarizes, and a whole lot more. If interested, please sign up in the Resource Room.
