Improving the quality of life of individuals with Down syndrome.

 
Special Education Advisory Committee

Every Ontario school board is mandated by the Ministry of Education to have a Special Education Advisory Committee.  SEAC is comprised of representatives from local associations, as well as community members, and school board trustees.  SEAC’s role is to make recommendations to school boards on matters affecting special education programs and services. 

Halton Down Syndrome Association has representation at both the Halton District School Board (HDSB) and the Halton Catholic District School Board (HCDSB). 

If you have any questions or concerns regarding your child’s education or supports at school, HDSA’s SEAC reps are there to help.  They are knowledgeable about the education system and up to date on board policies and initiatives.
