The Limestone District School Board invites parents' feedback and input regarding the implementation of Policy/Program Memorandum 140, Incorporating Methods of Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) into Programs for Students with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD).
Parents can access the online survey here from May 15 to June 2.
PPM 140 was released May 17, 2007 and provides direction to school boards to support their use of applied behaviour analysis (ABA) as an effective instructional approach in the education of many students with ASD.
PPM 140 includes a commitment to monitor school boards’ implementation of PPM 140 including the completion of an annual survey by all elementary and secondary schools, with results shared with the Ministry of Education.
In addition to addressing this commitment in PPM 140, the Limestone District School Board wishes to share the survey with parents and guardians of students with ASD and ask them to complete it. Please note that the Ministry will not be collecting the results of parent-completed surveys. However, the data collected by the Limestone District School Board will be used internally for improvement planning and professional learning processes.
