Who are we?

  

Parkholme is a school for students 14 to 21 years of age with developmental disabilities serving special needs students in the Brampton and Caledon Region.

 

Our goal is to provide an individualized program that assists all of our students to develop communication skills, life skills, and functional academics along with opportunities for integration into the community. Our special education teachers and specially trained teaching assistants provide the necessary support to help our students move toward independence during their years at Parkholme.

  

Programs

  

Parkholme Main Site

Programs for students ages 14 to 18 who require more intensive support are provided at the main campus. Some students require support for autism, physical disabilities and medical complications.

The focus of the program is:

  • functional academics
  • communication skills
  • opportunities for integration into the community
  • programs offering a strong component of sensory stimulation are provided

Satellite Locations

Some students attend secondary school satellite classes from ages 14 to 18.

The focus for the  program is:

  • functional academics
  • integration opportunities within the mainstream or community
  • to provide the ‘high school experience’

 

We have satellite locations at the following secondary schools in Brampton: 

  • Bramalea
  • Brampton Centennial
  • Central Peel
  • Chinguacousy
  • Heart Lake
  • Jean Augustine
  • North Park

Transition Program

When students turn 18 they move to the Transition Program for the last two years of their school experience. The focus of the program is on developing skills for life after school.

 

The three transition sites are:

  • Parkholme
  • Central Peel
  • North Park
