Toronto woman appalled by futile attempts to find Grade-6 class for wheelchair-bound son

A later meeting left her feeling even more unwelcome, as staff told her they wouldn’t be able to accommodate Jacob’s need for positional changes when he feels uncomfortable. This was a far cry from Jacob’s experience at Elkhorn, said Ms. White, where he was integrated into the regular classroom, along with his educational assistant.

So Ms. White suggested a similar set-up when she met with administrators of another school, the Deer Park Junior and Senior Public School. But she said the principal informed her that the Grade 6 teacher there has been teaching the same way for so long that her suggestion likely wouldn’t work.
