The Limestone District School Board invites parents' feedback and input regarding the implementation of Policy/Program Memorandum (PPM) 140, Incorporating Methods of Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) into programs for students with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD).
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 Board wishes to share the survey with parents and guardians of students with ASD and ask them to complete it. Parents can access the survey here. The survey will be open from April 9 to June 7.
Please note that the Ministry will not be collecting the results of parent-completed surveys. However, the data collected by the Board will be used internally for improvement planning and professional learning processes.
