These schools offer special education programs for your child. They also tailor their approach to your child's  unique learning strengths and weaknesses. 

Special education programs in Toronto

Toronto has several different kinds of special needs schools and programs. Some of these schools are focused exclusively on special needs students, and provide full-time support for them. Others offer a full-time, dedicated special education class or program for students with some kinds of special needs (a class that takes place alongside other classes). And others offer resource support or certain kinds of in-class accommodations for special needs children.

Each of these schools provides specialized support for children with special needs. Only some Toronto special need schools and programs, though, provide support for all or most special needs children. Most focus on specific kinds of special needs. While this isn’t an exhaustive list, there are schools providing support for one or more of the following kinds of special needs:

Keep in mind, different types of special needs children require different accommodations. For instance, a gifted student may require subject-specific enrichment or acceleration. A student with ADHD, on the other hand, may need to be placed in a smaller class, whether they can work in a calm environment and receive special attention. And a student with dyslexia may need extra time and support for reading and writing assignments. 

The benefits of special needs schools in Toronto

If you’re child has a special need, it’s important to address it. They can’t just be left to deal with it on their own.

A Toronto special needs school, whether it offers a full-time dedicated program or part-time support, is a step in the right direction. Your child will likely be assigned a special education teacher. They also will likely receive specialized programming in the form of an Independent Education Plan (IEP). This will help ensure they receive the accommodations they need, and don’t fall through the cracks.

This can also allow your child to avoid some common problems. Children with unaddressed special needs often fall behind in their school work. This can lead to frustration, boredom, and feeling disconnected. It also frequently leads to social and behavioural issues.

By going to a school that addresses their special need(s), your child can avoid these pitfalls. In fact, if you find a school that’s a good fit, one that offers the right kind of program and environment, your child can excel, academically, socially, and emotionally.

Luckily, in Toronto, there are many schools offering support for students with special needs. There are also nearby schools in Mississauga, Oakville, and Brampton.

To aid you in your search for the right special needs school, attend one of our annual private school expos. Meet with Toronto's top ranked private schools and the best boarding schools across Canada at the Halton-Peel expo and the Toronto expo in October.
