The Integrated Education and Therapy (IET) Program is an interdisciplinary early intervention program for children with a range of physical and/or communication disabilities from Kindergarten to Grade 1. During the school day, children receive physical, occupational and speech therapies along with educational programming to meet their academic needs, as outlined in their Individual Education Plan (IEP). 

Our school utilizes a team approach with teachers, therapists and support staff collaborating to establish individual learning and therapy goals and sharing the responsibility for programming to meet the needs of each student. In the fall, therapists will complete an initial assessment when students begin the  IET program to determine what their therapy will look like.

Our classrooms are set up in a Universal Design for Learning model that enables each student to learn and achieve to their fullest potential. The inclusive environment incorporates thoughtfully designed spaces, furniture and equipment, augmentative and alternative communication systems, adapted technology and computer systems that allow the child to gain the greatest benefit from the teaching and learning process.

A School Transition Liaison Teacher collaborates with the community School Boards to ensure a successful transition when the student leaves Bloorview School.
