Resource teachers

Resource services at Vanguard are complementary service that aims to help children and adolescents develop their full potential. The resource teacher works in collaboration with teachers, parents, and other professionals involved with the student. Resource periods can be used in a variety of contexts, such as developmental, remedial, and manipulative activities, to support students in their learning and development so that they can reach their full potential.

Psychologists

The psychology department addresses the learning and emotional needs of students in the school setting. Our goal is to promote a positive learning environment for students with specific learning disabilities and other neurodevelopmental disorders. We do this through individual and group interventions with students, consultations with teachers, workshops, and liaison work between families and community services.

Psychoeducators

A psychoeducator is first and foremost a field person, present in the daily lives of students at school to promote their social integration and autonomy. To do this, psychoeducation can detect, evaluate, and support students who are experiencing adjustment difficulties that have a negative impact on their integration and learning at school.

Special Care Counsellors

The SCC works in collaboration with teachers and other professionals to intervene directly with students with disabilities or with learning difficulties, adjustment difficulties, or behavioural difficulties. Their role is important to help the student, but also to support the teacher in the execution of their various tasks or in maintaining a harmonious climate. For example, they are often called upon to develop, organize, and lead various educational activities to develop social, cognitive, psychomotor, communication, self-esteem, assertiveness, problem- and conflict-resolution skills, etc.
