Negotiating the Maze – Ontario School Advocacy – 1

“No matter how hard I tried, I just couldn’t seem to get my child’s teacher to understand who my daughter was…

“How do I work with my child’s school?

Where can I find information about what my child has a right to?

“I don’t understand why I have to go through the same process year after year.

“All I want is the best for my child!”

“When I’m on my way to a meeting at the school I feel a tightness in an throat as I run through my head how the meeting will go”

Advocacy is about securing, protecting and advancing the rights of one’s self or others. Special education students have rights codified in Ontario Ministry Of Education regulations and the Ontario Human Rights Code and further developed in Court and Tribunal Decisions.
