Tevie Miller Heritage School Program
Tevie Miller Heritage School Program is an Edmonton Public Schools program of choice for students from Grades 1 through 6 with diagnosed communication delays. A wide range of language and literacy support systems address individual needs, strengths and abilities to maximize student achievement and growth. Class sizes range from 16 to 20 students and are supported by a collaborative class model made up of a Teacher, an Educational Assistant, a Speech-Language Pathologist, and a Speech-Language Pathologist Assistant. Individual Program Plans are in place for each student with an emphasis on language and literacy. Speech and Language goals are integrated into daily academic instruction with additional small group and/or 1:1 Speech and Language services provided by the Tevie Miller Heritage School Society through the payment of parent fees as well as supports from Alberta Health Services.
A comprehensive literacy approach is used in all classes, with additional support for targeted students through literacy support programs and leveled literacy intervention.
Tevie Miller Heritage School Program also offers American Sign Language as a second language course beginning in Grade 4. Second language programming in Edmonton Public School is supported as a District-wide best practice and is aligned with Board policy.
