Additional Needs

February 8, 2023

The following information is based on the Ministry of Education's Supporting Students with Additional Needs.

Students with additional needs are are supported by parents and caregivers, educational professionals, and other supportive people in an inclusive setting.

Our goal is student success. We foster student independence and learning using a needs-based approach that focuses on student strengths and interests. Parents and caregivers are important members of the support team and have valuable information and insights that help identify student needs.

Each child is unique—as are their needs—so supports vary. Sometimes adaptations to the learning environment, teacher instruction or resources are necessary and beneficial to student success.

For more information, contact your local Catholic school (see a list of schools and contact information).
