Student Support Services -       Special Education Information for Caregivers

Welcome to the Upper Grand District School Board’s caregiver site for students with Special Education Needs. All students learn in different ways, demonstrating varying areas of strength and need.  Special Education refers to the teaching and support of students who have an Individual Education Plan (IEP) and/or whose learning profile indicates a need for specialized programming and supports. As members of the UGDSB Special Education team, our goal is to provide students and their families with the resources and tools required for students to progress in their learning and successfully continue on their academic journey. We recognize that we are coming through some challenging times, and hope everyone is doing well, and managing as best you can. If you are struggling, and are in need of support, please do not hesitate to reach out.  (Mental Health & Well-Being Site)

On this site, you will find links to various learning profiles (as they are defined within the UGDSB), ideas for daily routines, behavioural supports and strategies, our boards mental health website, and more. Each of these links will take you to a section designed to offer support for students with varying learning needs. The resources and suggestions provided are meant to be used alongside the resources and tools provided by classroom teachers.
