Special Education and Inclusion is pleased to offer a number of “Fact Sheets” that provide information on students with Special Education Needs (SEN) in the Toronto District School Board (TDSB). These fact sheets will include insights on:
- processes and criteria for identifying students as exceptional;
- the demographics of students with special education needs within the overall TDSB student population;
- exceptionalities and classroom settings; and
- the academic achievements and post-secondary trajectories for students with special education needs.
Fact Sheet #1, An Introductory Overview of Students with Special Education Needs, is the first in a series of fact sheets examining a range of topics impacting students with special education needs within the Toronto District School Board (TDSB). This fact sheet provides an introductory overview of TDSB students with special education needs in the 2022-23 school year.
By offering a detailed snapshot of our current landscape, we hope this document will serve as a valuable resource for all stakeholders as we work together to support students with special education needs.
