Children with learning differences may have multiple paraprofessionals and educators providing services. Feedback from each professional is generally stored in multiple areas. It can be difficult for parents to compile all input and get an accurate picture of a child’s overall developmental progress.
Parents could use a central place for all this information to be stored and an opportunity for educators to discuss a child’s needs and progress in real time. Educa offers a number of solutions for managing children’s learning.
Learning stories are written by educators, therapists, and parents to document learning events in positive ways.
Unlike traditional assessments, learning stories interpret learning and engage families in forward thinking “next steps.” Learning stories show change over time and can be aligned to milestones and educational frameworks.
Lastly, learning stories are inclusive- written to children and highlighting their strengths - an important element in the social emotional health of children with learning differences.

Documentation of services can be both daunting and time consuming for families and educators. Educa creates and stores forms for student learning plans or other required documentation.
Our Support Team can recreate and make interactive most required educational forms. Educators and parents can contribute to forms to be saved on the platform or printed as PDFs.
Learn how to use Forms at your centre by checking out this guide.
Learning is not confined to school. Parents can reflect on learning at home in the context of progress made at school by writing learning stories.
Parents document learning at home in a learning story and receive responses in the form of comments from educators or other professionals. This collaboration treats parents as partners in their child’s learning journey.
