The Student Services team consists of social workers, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, educational psychologists, and speech language pathologists.
The vision and beliefs of Student Services supports this definition and demonstrates our commitment to assisting schools as they provide an environment within which all students can develop educationally and flourish personally and socially. We are committed to maximizing the potential of students and empowering them to become valued, contributing participants in the classroom, school and community, and as citizens within our society.
“Inclusion is a way of thinking and acting that allows every individual to feel accepted, valued and safe. An inclusive community consciously evolves to meet the changing needs of its members. Through recognition and support, an inclusive community provides meaningful involvement and equal access to the benefits of citizenship. In Manitoba, we embrace inclusion as a means of enhancing the well-being of every member of the community. By working together, we strengthen our capacity to provide the foundation for a richer future for all of us.” (ME, 2006).
