IEP/GLP admissions

Individualized Education Program (IEP)

An IEP defines the individualized objectives of a child who has been determined to have a disability or requires specialized accommodation, as defined by federal regulations. The IEP is intended to help children reach educational goals more easily than they otherwise would. In all cases the IEP must be tailored to the individual student’s needs as identified by the IEP evaluation process, and must especially help teachers and related service providers (such as paraprofessional educators) understand the student’s disability and how the disability affects the learning process.

The IEP describes how the student learns, how the student best demonstrates that learning and what teachers and service providers will do to help the student learn more effectively. Developing an IEP requires evaluating students in all areas related to the suspected disabilities, simultaneously considering ability to access the general curriculum, considering how the disability affects the student’s learning, forming goals and objectives that correspond to the needs of the student, and choosing a placement in the least restrictive environment possible for the student.

General Learning Program (GLP)

The Ministry of Education defines a mild intellectual disability as:
A learning disorder characterized by:

(a) An ability to profit educationally within a regular class with the aid of considerable curriculum modification and supportive service;

(b) An inability to profit educationally within a regular class because of slow intellectual development;

(c) A potential for academic learning, independent social adjustment, and economic self-support.

The Canstem Education supports students with a mild intellectual disability in a variety of ways, including in a regular class environment or a specialized program class environment. These students may have some of the following characteristics: low academic achievement; require specific instruction for basic concepts; difficulty generalizing information from one situation to another; lagging daily living and social skills.
