The Ontario Human Rights Commission
invites you to join us for a FREE training on the recently released:
Policy on accessible education for students with disabilities
Friday, November 9, 2018
10 a.m. - Noon
180 Dundas Street West, 8th Floor Boardroom
Toronto, Ontario M7A 2G5
The Ontario Human Rights Commission (OHRC) recognizes that people with disabilities continue to face obstacles in their attempts to access educational services in Ontario - this is happening despite a highly regulated and complex education framework designed to address the “special needs” of students. These obstacles are present at all levels of the education system and include:
- inaccessible built environments
- inadequate resources and supports in the classroom
- long waiting lists for professional assessments
- inappropriate requests by educational institutions for medical information
- denial of disability-related accommodations
- persistent negative attitudes and stereotypes towards people with disabilities
- ineffective dispute resolution processes.
Join us to learn more about protections for students with disabilities under Ontario’s Human Rights Code, and about the role of decision-makers, educators and parents in making sure every student gets the education they need to succeed.
Registration is now closed.
If you need an accommodation based on a Human Rights Code ground to take part, let us know by Friday, November 2, 2018.
Space is limited, so register early!
This session will be delivered in English. Printed materials are available in French on request.
