Seneca School is a congregated elementary school for students with developmental disabilities, who are in Kindergarten to Grade 8. Our students come from all over the west end of Toronto and we provide them with specialized programs that meet their individual needs. We are committed to supporting students in all areas of their developmental growth and some of our key areas of focus are: developing students’ skills in expressive communication, by using visual supports and technology (for example: iPads or Eye Gaze devices); increasing students’ fine and gross motor skills by using equipment recommended by our occupational therapist or physiotherapist, and promoting student independence, wherever possible.
Members of staff at Seneca School believe in the potential of each of our students and we work together to provide an atmosphere in which our students can learn and grow. On staff, we have special education teachers, educational assistants, special needs assistants, noon hour assistants and deaf/blind intervenors. We work in consultation with professional support staff, including a psychologist, a speech and language pathologist, a social worker, a physiotherapist, and an occupational therapist to meet the social, emotional, physical and learning needs of our students. As a school community, we also work with a variety of agencies to support our students in the achievement the goals on their Individual Education Plans.
