Who We Are

  • KidsAbility™ School is one of six Section 68 schools in Ontario operating within a children’s treatment centre.
  • KidsAbility School is independent of the two local school boards, and as such, has its own trustees who govern the operations and policies of the school.
  • Funding is provided by the Ministry of Education for staffing and operational expenses.
  • KidsAbility School operates half-day specialized education programs for junior kindergarten-aged children who have communication, physical and/or developmental disabilities.
  • To be eligible to attend the KidsAbility School, children must be clients of KidsAbility Centre for Child Development.
  • The one-year programs focus on early identification, early intervention and transition into community schools.
  • Therapy services are provided through KidsAbility Centre for Child Development. Teachers, parents, educational assistants and therapists work as teams to combine education and therapy in order to meet the unique needs of each child.
  • Special Education Liaison Services are also available to provide support for the transition of students to community schools.
