The Inclusion Program at Erindale is a unique 5 year integrated DD Resource Program with a focus on Integration.  Since its inception, the main focus has been to provide students with developmental disabilities a regular high school experience.  The students are supported by Teaching Assistants full -time as they follow a time table and attend 75% of the mainstream classes on a modified program.  The students in the Program work toward the completion of a Certificate of Accomplishment from Erindale Secondary School


The program includes 3 out of 4 classes with mainstream students and 1 withdrawal class that focuses on Functional Literacy and Numeracy with their peers in the program.  The students gain academic, social and life skills by being integrated/included into all aspects of regular high school life while being part of the Erindale Secondary School community. In the students final year, they further develop their independent living skills through real -life project based course work and experiences.


After the completion of the program, students move to the Transition to Work/Community Program currently offered by Applewood School, Parkholme School and Thomas L Kennedy Secondary School (TLK). 


It is a wonderful experience for all of our students and are we are very proud to be able to expand placement options for secondary students with a developmental disability.
