Steps to Shadow Support
Parents can enroll with the following steps in mind:
Enquire with Shadow Advantage to find out more about Shadow Support. This could be a phone call, a zoom or in-person meeting. The purpose of this meeting is to gain a better understanding of your child's needs. If necessary, the Shadow Manager would recommend an assessment. This may cover a full Speech and Language, Occupational, and/or Educational report. If the child does not already have an Educational Psychologist report, he may be referred for this as well.
After the Evaluation, the Shadow Manager will advise on intervention and the appropriate shadow for the child. Shadows work in a variation of 3, 4 and 5 full school days. Shadows are appointed for a 6 month basis before review of progress.
A group meeting will be set up for the parents, Shadow and Case Manager. Case manager will set out Individual Education Plans (IEPs) for the child.
The Shadow Process will commence.
