School Health Support Services
Access to education for students with complex health problems and disabilities
Many students with complex health problems and disabilities would not be able to attend school without the necessary support we can offer, which enables success. A large number of students we serve have developmental delays or other challenges that do not affect their ability to attend school but may affect their ability to fully benefit from educational routines and thrive as best they can.
Services are available in school for eligible students who require medical and/or rehabilitative assistance to enable them to attend school, participate in school routines and receive instruction. The program serves students in public schools and private schools, as well as students receiving home instruction.
These supports are provided on a priority-needs basis and children with complex needs requiring assistance in order to safely attend school are the top priority. A care coordinator will assess the student’s needs and create a supportive care plan for the individual.
Eligibility, service(s) and the referral process for public, private and homeschool differ. Please refer to the information below and click on the appropriate school category.
