We support special needs students with ministry designations A thru G, with the help of a team of professionals ranging from: School Support Workers, Speech and Language Pathologists, Behavioral Interventionists, Mental Health Professionals, Physio Therapists, and Deaf/Blind Consultants.
We focus on life skills such as: increasing communication output, emotional and behavioral development, and establishing healthy eating, exercise and hygiene routines.
We get involved around the school with activities such as; a recycling program, gardening program, paper shredding, mail delivery, and attending modified cooking/woodworking/music classes. We participate in our community each day with activities such as swimming, bowling, street safety, shopping and transportation training.

Funding and program placement after the age of 19 is determined by
provincial funding budgets and available spaces. Children with the highest needs get services first. Wait times for funding and program placement can take 3 to 12 months after graduation.
Each year Pam hosts 3 information nights to share valuable
information and help parents build supportive networks .

Here are the guidelines we follow at the VSB:
If a student is NOT 19 by year’s end-June 30th-they are eligible to stay for an additional year.
We have a number of additional year programs now that will support students outside of their program classes but they fill up fast and we typically take students who will age out the year of them participating in the program.
