If your child has special education needs and will be entering Kindergarten for the first time, call your local school (http://www.tdsb.on.ca/FindYour/School.aspx) well in advance to set up an appointment to meet with the principal to share your child’s needs, any documentation and discuss supports that are available for your child. By planning early, your child will have the supports and resources they need for a successful transition to school. Following registration, most children will be placed in a regular classroom. A few children may require a Transition Planning Conference or may be referred to the local
School Support Team before starting school. For some of those children, the School Support Team may recommend a referral to a Special Education Program Recommendation Committee.
