Special Education

The Special Education Program supports students who have exceptional learning needs. Students are recognized as exceptional learners if they have behavioral, communicational, intellectual, physical or multiple exceptionalities.

Students are encouraged to take Learning Strategies (GLE) or to receive monitoring by the Special Education Teachers in order to reinforce strategies, monitor achievement and determine accommodations teachers can use in the classroom to assist each student with his/her learning strengths and concerns.

Special Education teachers work in a collaborative manner and provide assistance for students, parents and classroom teachers to determine Individual Education Plans (IEP) for each student as well as suggest appropriate accommodations to enhance learning, environmental and testing opportunities. Services provided by the TDSB such as Psychology and Speech & Language are also available if needed.
