Accessibility in School Curriculums at Every Level

In the third review of the AODA, the Honourable David Onley recommends needed improvements to the Act. One of these improvements is the need to help more Ontarians learn about people with disabilities and understand accessibility. During public meetings Onley held while preparing his review, attendees requested that the government mandate accessibility in school curriculums at every level. If students learn about disability during elementary and high school, they will know the truth about how disability impacts people’s lives. Moreover, they will be comfortable interacting with people who have disabilities.
