Resource Guide: Special Education Navigation Tool

cupw sttp logo

The Resource Guide: Special Education Navigation Tool is an online searchable PDF document. It supports parents and guardians of children with special needs to more easily navigate the public education system in their province or territory.

Having access to information about programs and services will better support parents/guardians to ensure their child has access to a truly inclusive education.

To use the guide parents/guardians simply navigate to their province or territory to find key information about what their school age child is entitled to:

  • Transportation to school
  • Definition of inclusive education
  • Individual program plans and how they work
  • Suspension and expulsion processes
  • Parental rights
  • Alternatives to a school diploma
  • Transition planning
  • Other community supports and programs for school age children

The Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives created this guide for the Canadian Union of Postal Workers and the Union of Postal Communications Employees.
