No, Bloorview School Authority is one of six publicly funded Section 68 schools in Ontario. Section 68 Schools are housed in Children’s Treatment Centres such as Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital (HBKRH). As such, Bloorview School does not belong to any of the local District School Boards, and has its own trustees who govern the operations and policies of the school.
All students admitted to Bloorview School are registered clients of Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital (HBKRH) or, for York Region students, a client of Children’s Treatment Network (CTN) and have a primary diagnosis of a physical disability and other associated complex needs. The initial step in a multi-step application process is the receipt of the IET Applicant Information From Referring Source form for your child from a referring practitioner at HBKRH or CTN.
Priority is given to applicants who have the potential to access the Ontario curriculum and who require a multidisciplinary approach for education and therapy.

The Integrated Education and Therapy (IET) Program is a Kindergarten to Grade 1 interdisciplinary program for children with a range of physical and/or communication disabilities. Physical, occupational and speech therapies are integrated into the child’s school day as part of the educational programming.
The teachers, therapists and educational assistants collaborate to establish individual learning and therapy goals and share the responsibility of programming for the goals of each student.
An Individualized Education Plan (IEP) is a working document describing the special education program and/or services required by a particular student, based on a thorough assessment of strengths and needs that affect the student’s ability to learn and to demonstrate learning. The plan may include learning expectations that are modified from the expectations for the regular grade level and/or identify alternative expectations, if required, in areas not represented in the Ontario curriculum (e.g., Activities of Daily Living).
An IEP also includes a transition plan to ensure that a student has supports in place when they transition to their community schools.
