OHRC launches online videos on its Policy on accessible education for students with disabilities

The OHRC has released videotapes of a training session on our new Policy on accessible education for students with disabilities. OHRC Senior Policy Analyst Cherie Robertson leads you through key elements of the policy, including:

  • The vital importance of education to a person’s social, academic and economic development – and the need for accessibility and accommodation in the process
  • A broad definition of disability
  • Up-to-date information about human rights and responsibilities for students, parents and educators
  • Practical guidance to education providers to meet their legal duty to accommodate

The training session is presented in two videos (Part 1 – 48 minutes and Part 2 – 37 minutes) suitable for viewing on larger screens for group viewing. Wherever possible, audience questions and answers have been included.

The videos are available in English, with both English and French captioning options. As well, each video features ASL translation.
