Education support person?

Hi,I'm new to this forum - thanks for welcoming me! My question is, I'd like to find a type of learning support person - not a teacher or tutor! My girl T. is 15 and just really not enjoying school last year, doing poorly on tests and not caring.. grades good enogugh but not happy at all!! I want to see what can be done. Teachers just said to take different courses or do extracurriculars which doesn't help. Would anyone know of a resource person/student help for this even online?? Thank…See More

"There were two special education related articles in the Toronto Star today. I thought I would post the links here: No more wait lists for disabled in Ontario, all-party report urges. TDSB struggles to meet obligations to special education students."
