Special Education

The Special Education Department focuses on programs and supports for exceptional students to support their access of Ontario Curriculum, encourage their independence, and to help them reach their highest possible potential.

The Special Education team consists of our Special Education Resource Teachers, Educational Assistance and Autism Spectrum Workers.

Some of our key supports include:

  • Resource Support Room - Students are able to receive accommodations and supports here throughout the school day. 
  • Technology Support - for students with school assigned technology we provide assistance with access to the school network, printing, training and repairs. 
  • Self Advocacy Support - Our staff provides support to students who need assistance with voicing their needs in regards to their accommodations and learning. We focus on helping students to learn how to understand their learning needs and how to explain to others what they need in order to be successful.
  • K-Courses are non-credit courses delivered through the Special Education Department or a Subject Teacher.

Our department also includes the following specialized programs:
  • Learning for Living
  • Centre for Autism Spectrum Assistance
