Learning Support

The DIS school community strives to be an inclusive educational environment dedicated to honoring the uniqueness of all learners. Our team of educators works collaboratively with families of students with learning differences and related challenges, in order to meet their needs.

Our Student Support Services team, which includes qualified Learning Support Specialists, is committed to providing various research based models of support such as targeted small group instruction, Response to Intervention,  differentiated instruction, and student centered accommodations.

DIS can offer students with mild to moderate needs one or more of the following models: in-class support and accommodations, small group targeted instruction, and pull-out intervention.

Student Support Services

Our Student Support Services help us meet the needs of a range of learning profiles.

English Language Support

The English as an Additional Language (EAL) program exists to ensure that students arriving at the school with limited or no experience of English are supported during their acquisition of the language. 


Our two school counsellors, one at the Primary School and one at the Secondary School, are dedicated to supporting students, teachers, and parents with wellbeing and emotional health, with the goal of promoting academic success.
