Diversity, Equity, Inclusion
All students are supported at Inly. Our Learning Specialists and a range of other dedicated support staff identify children developing at a different rate to the expected level of progress, whether they are taking longer to achieve milestones, or exceeding learning goals at a fast rate.
Support staff who supplement the Inly learning journey include our:
- Learning Specialists
- Math Integrationist
- School Counselor
- Consulting Occupational Therapist
- Consulting Speech Pathologist
All of these professionals are able to support students, teachers and parents alike, and both parents and faculty are welcome to initiate the use of their expertise.
Support staff work by completing classroom observations and then discussing with faculty and parents about an approach that will best meet the student’s needs. Accommodation plans will be created by our team for students who have been identified as having a learning difference or health need, ensuring that their needs are communicated to teachers and a tailored approach is provided with minimal disruption to the child’s work.
Nearly every bit of research I have encountered speaks to finding the safest space for dyslexic children to learn. Without it shame, doubt, embarrassment all creep in destroying self-confidence and crushing any enjoyment in learning. I witnessed the power of a shift in environment with my son Dylan who joined the Inly family three months ago. In this short time he has completely changed as a student and more importantly as a person. His confidence has sky-rocketed, his love of learning has finally been sparked, and he is truly happy from the minute he wakes up to when his head hits the pillow at night. Our family dynamic has changed for the better as Dylan’s new found inner joy bubbles over to the rest of us.
