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.
