Exceptional & Special Needs

The CBE provides appropriate programming for students with exceptional and special needs in all of our community schools.

We provide programming at various sites to meet specialized needs of some students with:

  • Autism Spectrum, Cognitive/Developmental Disabilities, Fetal Alcohol Spectrum
  • Blind and Visually Impaired
  • Deaf and Hard of Hearing (DHH)
  • Giftedness 
  • Gifted and Talented Education
  • Learning Disabilities
  • Mental Health and Wellness (social/emotional/behavioural challenges) 
  • Physical and Medical Disabilities

Every year many CBE schools participate in a Terry Fox Run. In 2020, our schools raised an incredible $163,886.64 for cancer research. Thank you to all of our students, staff and school communities who have kept Terry’s dream alive 40 years after his journey began! #WeAreCBE https://t.co/di9w1dX7DI
