The Academic Support Department in Special Education provides a variety of programs to assist students identified as exceptional by an IPRC and to those students who have needs beyond those that are met by regular classroom instruction. Programs and services are provided through both individual and group approaches. Our staff focuses on assessment, remedial work, and development of learning skills. Students are encouraged to access room 124, 128 and 129 during class time with permission from their subject teacher. They are asked to sign-in and seek the necessary assistance from available staff. Computers are available in room 124, as are individual SEA systems. Room 124 is open before and after school, as well as at lunch for students who find the noise and social atmosphere of the cafeteria and other shared spaces overwhelming. Staff are available at those times to provide assistance with schoolwork and organization. In collaboration with the Co-op program, we try to provide opportunities for students to gain work and volunteer experience to build towards independent living and working.

Learning and Life Skills (LLS)
At CCI we currently have 3 sections of Learning and Life Skills in our school. This class supports students with Developmental Disabilities and is staffed by teachers and support staff. Our program provides students with life skills teaching and support for transition to the community.
Many of our students from the LLS program are integrated into mainstream classrooms for a portion of their day. This provides the students with the opportunity to learn in areas where they have demonstrated strengths. These opportunities, when appropriate and available, are a valuable way to provide our greater school community with an opportunity to demonstrate inclusion and support for individual difference. At CCI we celebrate all students working together to foster understanding and friendship for all involved.
