Case Managers play a critical role in ensuring success in the Shadow experience. Case managers provide the Shadow with ongoing mentoring, and professional input using their experiences as therapists. Case Managers can enhance the quality of work that the Shadow provides, and ensures that the student is making objective, real progress.
Steps to Shadow Support
Parents can enroll with the following steps in mind:
Enquire with Shadow Advantage, sign up for a Standard Assessment. This may cover a full Speech and Language, Occupational, and Educational report. If the child does not already have an Educational Psychologist report, he will be referred for this.
After the Evaluation, the Manager will advise with regards to intervention, the appointed case manager and 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 arranged between the Case Manager, the shadow appointed, the parent and the Teacher. Thereafter, the Individual Education Plans (IEPs) would be set out for the child.
The Shadow and Report Process will start.
Parents are our partners and every effort will be done to provide new updates and feedback to them
A group meeting amongst teachers, Speech Language Pathologists, Occupational Therapists or other supporting professionals can be conducted at opportune moments to highlight changes in curriculum demands and related support.
