Welcome to Special Education in Ontario: on the bell curve!

Welcome to Special Education in Ontario: on the bell curve!

I hope this blog serves as an introduction to Special Education in Ontario and Canada.  Information about specific Exceptionalities is drawn from all over the world, but with a focus on education in Ontario.

Information about specific policies, procedures and paperwork (such as IEPs and IPRCs) focus on Ontario, but I have included other provinces as well.

Special Education in Ontario: on the bell curve is an annotated bibliography, a compendium of resources for a range of Exceptionalities – ADHD, ODD, ASD, SPD, etc…   This is a slavishly organized and well-researched guide about Exceptionalities, the Ontario School System and how to navigate it all.

This blog is a work in progress and will grow – please help by sharing links via comments.

You might be asking — what’s up with the jelly bean header? I wanted to show the neurological, ethnic, social, spiritual, and sexual diversity that makes up our schools and communities. A handful of jelly beans is a rainbow of flavours that all meld together, and are best shared among friends. And that is what I hope you will do.

 Note: This is a PERSONAL blog, not an official Ministry of Education website. This is a forum for sharing.

Please add comments and your favourite resources (and let me know if there are any dead links!) Thank you!

    Hi Angela,

    I tried to read your latest posting, “SMART goals for IEPS”, but I was not able to access the content as it is password protected. Can you please let me know what I need to do to gain access to your most recent posting? Thanks very much.
