Being disabled should not mean being disqualified from having access to every aspect of life.

Amethyst School  

The provincial demonstration schools provide educational programs for students with severe learning disabilities. Students come to our programs significantly underachieving in some or all of the academic areas. Poor reading, writing, spelling and mathematics skills are common; many students also have immature social skills. Nevertheless, all our students have average to above average potentials. In addition, our students display some, or all, of the following characteristics:

  • difficulty with receptive and expressive language;
  • poor sequencing, discrimination, coordination, organization and spatial skills;
  • auditory and/or visual memory problems;
  • focusing difficulties.  

 

Specialized programs are provided for students with severe learning disabilities in association with an attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. The length of a stay at provincial demonstration school is up to two years in the regular program or one year in our A.D.H.D/L.D. program. Since provincial demonstration schools are designed to serve as a resource to school boards, rather than to function as a separate education system, every effort is made to help the student return as soon as possible to an appropriate program in his/her local community. Transition plans are prepared and follow-up is provided for students when they return to their home school boards.
