SEAC - December 2016 - Meeting Minutes

Our last SEAC meeting was on Tuesday December 20, 2016.
Highlights from the December meeting that may be of interest to Autism Ontario:
Most of the meeting was spent on identifying exceptional students and how that process was done - testing is done in Grade 4 and if child scores 98% on the GAI (General Ability Index) they are admitted into the program
Had a presentation from the Regina Mundi College students and staff from the "School to Community" program that has been run under the religious studies area with great success - open to both mainstream and exceptional students with learning disabilities
Reviewed the EQAO scores from the last year and specifically around identified students - very high rate of all of our identified students taking the EQAO test
Set Tuesday February 21, 2017 as our SEAC Parenting Network night at the LDCSB office - finer details to still be established at our January 2017 meeting but the plan for the night is to be:
First half: plan to have a table of reps for parents to meet from a variety of board reps/services: for example: SLP, Social Work, Psychology, Positive Behaviour Support, Mental Health and hopefully Thames Valley Children's Hospital
Second half - Director of Education to speak and then everyone to group according to where their children are in the education process (grade / age / transition stage upcoming) to discuss together along with board personnel there to answer questions and share information and stories. Once finalized, invitations will be given to every parent of an identified student - so all of our parents will be invited to attend but I will forward you a digital mock up of the invite that you may also want to share with our membership once it is completed

Check out the new ASD Topic located under Youth, Adults & Seniors. Here you will find links to all sorts of resources, such as general information about ASD, Spirale (a complete listing of all ASD specialists in Ontario), videos from families sharing their success stories and challenges. We are currently developing and collecting more content.
The intent is this webpage becomes a ‘one stop shop’ for ASD resources, with a particular focus on adults, the transition from teen to adult services and passport funding (the process, services etc.)
