Day Treatment Program

The Day Treatment Program is designed to address the students’ individual social and emotional needs in an academic setting. The Rainbow District School Board works in partnership with the Child and Family Centre to help students develop effective strategies to promote social/emotional stabilization, well-being and academic success. This small class setting, with a full time teacher, educational assistant/child and youth worker and clinician enables students to work at their own pace in a relaxed setting.

Lifeskills Program

This is a self-contained class program for secondary students identified with a moderate to severe intellectual exceptionality who require alternative curriculum programming. The focus is on developing basic literacy, numeracy, social and independent living skills. Transition planning is focused on addressing the unique needs of the learner and to ensure a smooth transition from secondary school to postsecondary education, employment or to supported or independent living. Parental involvement is encouraged and students may attend this program until age 21.
