Equipping our students with literacy skills is a key priority at Beldon Education Support Centre. These skills are essential for all our students due to the positive ripple effect on all aspects of development and later success. We implement a comprehensive whole school literacy program following the Four Blocks Literacy Model. Students receive explicit instruction in shared reading, independent reading, shared writing, independent writing and phonics/word study every day. This approach caters specifically for students with disabilities and incorproates Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) methods. All of our staff have received extensive training in our literacy approach and are well equipped to cater to the needs of our students. We have an established literacy area whereby students receive individual and small group instruction and have access to a wide range of texts and resources.
