Related Services

Related services identified on each student’s Individualized Education Plan (IEP) are offered. Related services are delivered in pull out, embedded and consultative formats. These services include, but are not limited to, the following:
•Speech/Language Pathology
•Mental Health Services
•Occupational Therapy
•Physical Therapy
•School Health Services
•Audiology
Related services are interwoven with the instructional program and delivered within the classroom setting whenever possible. Psychiatric consults are available. An interdisciplinary team approach ensures regular and cohesive communication and co-planning amongst teachers, related services and therapeutic staff.
Positive Behaviour Intervention:
For many students, academic needs are secondary to the extensive behavioural and environment support required to permit access to instruction. Riddhi has a highly structured behaviour management system with predictable rewards and consequences that uses a meaningful point system monitored by both teacher and student as appropriate. Students have opportunities to regain self-control in the classroom (called self-helps), or they can be directed to one of several resource areas for supervised support while they regain their ability to return to classroom instruction. Crisis intervention is available when needed, and all staff members are trained in research-based behavioural intervention practices.
Sensory needs are addressed through modifications to the classroom environment and access to a variety of sensory strategies including a state-of-the-art multi-sensory room.
