Holland Bloorview Seeking Community Feedback

We are reaching out to share an opportunity for you to provide input on the creation of a new learning resource for educators and school board staff across Ontario, Kindergarten to Grade 12, in English and French. This work is being led by Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital, together with The Bloorview School Authority, and has been provided with funding by the Ontario Ministry of Education.


The resource, consisting of five online learning modules and a facilitator’s guide, is intended to expand on existing knowledge about accessibility, inclusion, and how to ensure that students with disabilities experience full participation in school settings. Read more about the project and individual modules here.

Engagement with stakeholders throughout the province is key to the success of the project. Holland Bloorview has prepared a brief survey for educators, students, and parents of children living with a disability. If you are interested in completing the survey, click on this link to launch the survey.


If you would like further information about the project, please contact Joanne Close
