*With regard to Accommodations, City Adult Learning Centre follows the key principles laid out in the TDSB 2018 Special Education Plan :

Dignity: Students with disabilities have the right to receive educational services in a manner that is respectful of their dignity, which encompasses both self-respect and self-worth.

Individualization: Every student with a disability is unique. Although many accommodations will benefit large numbers of students with similar needs, two students with the same disability may call for different kinds of accommodation and instructional approaches.

Inclusion: While there are times when the best way to ensure the dignity of persons with disabilities may be to provide separate or specialized services, education providers must first make efforts to accommodate students with disabilities in a way that promotes their inclusion and full participation.
