Parents & Caregivers

Do you struggle with knowing what to do to help your child with special needs in school?You're not alone. It’s a new language and it’s confusing.  Parents want to know:

  • What are our child’s rights?
  • How do I deal with the school?
  • How do we get services?

The Ontario Special Needs Roadmap is the culmination of over a year and a half of research that has been compiled in this new interactive school roadmap to help parents navigate the system. The roadmap explains what the different processes mean and how they impact your child. 

This roadmap is your GPS to navigate the education system in Ontario for all children with special needs.
