Learning Resource Program
The Learning Resource Program is designed to support students with special learning needs to succeed in Mater Dei Catholic School. Placement in the Learning Resource Program is determined by classroom performance, educational testing, teacher recommendation, and parental consent. Our Learning Resource Program consists of two classrooms, one for students in Grades 1-4 in English Language Arts and one for studentss in Grades 5-8 in English Language Arts and or Mathematics. Both classrooms have one full-time teacher and an instructional aide. The Learning Resource Room teachers employ cooperative learning techniques, partner activities, hands on activities, and both individual and small group instruction. A multi-sensory approach to language arts and mathematics in a smaller group setting is employed to respond to the individual needs of every student.
