The Impact of Special Education Tribunal Decisions on the Definition of an Appropriate Education for an Exceptional Child in Ontario.
Godsell, Edward J.
B.C. Journal of Special Education, v17 n2 p110-18 1993
The Special Education Tribunals, established in Ontario (Canada) as an appeals adjudication structure, have expanded the educational rights of exceptional children beyond the rights legislated in the Education Act 1980. School boards are required to consider the child's needs, the program of studies, the teaching methodology, and the philosophy of education when designing individualized educational programming.
