At ASCEND Online, we see each student as a unique individual to be celebrated, supported in their learning and development. Our programs are based on the understanding that learning grows from strong relationships of trust and acceptance, and from thoughtful, open-hearted communication. Students who need support for learning above and beyond the K-12 program are included in the Inclusive Education (formerly called Special Education) program, either through Learning Services or through IEd services.
Learning Services provides support for students who have learning disabilities, ADHD, mild intellectual disability, speech/articulation challenges and moderate behaviour/mental health issues. Based on needs, an IEP may be created, which details the programs and resources provided to support students in reaching the goals on their Student Learning Plan and may include additional learning and development goals.
