Dee Gordon is an autism mom and activist who is walking to Ottawa, over 500km, to raise awareness, educate & gather signatures and to ask the Federal government for a National ASD strategy. Dee is leaving Queen's Park on January 15, 2015 and passed through Durham Region on January 16th and 17th.

We were honoured to be able to give Dee an opportunity to speak at the Oshawa Civic Recreation Complex. Thank you to Mayor John Henry, Councillors Lorne Coe and Amy England as well as community members for attending. It was a very inspirational night and we wish Dee all the best on her journey. #pancanautism

DDSB Special Education Survey

The Durham District School Board’s Special Education Department is undertaking a review of how it provides services to students with special needs. The purpose of this survey is to gather information on the current service delivery model.

While the DDSB currently offers a wide range of supports and services to our students with special needs, forecasted funding changes require that we look at current practices for their effectiveness and efficiency. This is an opportunity to identify what we do very well and what may not be the most efficient or effective use of resources. This survey is intended to give anyone who is impacted by special education services the opportunity to have input into the future service model.
