1:1 Support

1:1 Support at Aspire provide opportunities for students to proactively learn skills that will help them flourish in many environments including group learning environments and classrooms. Students can participate solely in 1:1 sessions if they are not yet ready to learn in group environments or can receive 1:1 support  in the classroom. Students can also engage in 1:1 pull-out sessions to proactively learn and practice difficult academic and non-academic skills, or work ahead of their classroom group on subjects that they excel in.

1:1 Support is ideal for students who require thoughtful and well-planned prompting, guidance and reinforcement; and for skills to be broken down and taught in smaller steps.

What to expect:

Our ultimate goal is for each student to actively participate and thrive in a group learning environment. 1:1 support, in various forms, can be an essential part of achieving this goal. We offer 1:1 support in the following ways:

1:1 Support in the Classroom: 1:1 support is available for students who require additional individualized support as they transition into or stay in a group learning environment. This support can include providing guidance, motivating the student, encouraging on-task behaviour, validating learning and more. 1:1 support in the classroom helps students become successful members of the classroom and meet the Ontario Ministry of Education objectives.

1:1 Intensive Teaching Sessions: In these sessions, 1 educator and 1 student work together in a learning environment that was designed to minimize distractions and allow the student to focus on learning and skill development. Foundational learning skills and pre-academic skills are taught using evidence-based ABA strategies. Learning goals are achieved through repetition, frequent practice and skill scaffolding.

1:1 Pull-Out Sessions: All classroom programs implement 1:1 teaching sessions to encourage students to develop strong learning habits, problem-solving skills and self-regulation. This 1:1 teaching time provides students with additional support for trickier subjects, creating opportunities for extra practice, to break down skills further or teach skills in different ways. Alternately, students can be exposed to advanced curriculum in areas where they excel.
