The Halton District School Board is committed to the principle that learning is a developmental process and students proceed through the stages of development at varying rates. The HDSB is also committed to the principle that early recognition of learning needs and early intervention is the most effective way to ensure the student remains confident about his/her abilities as a learner and engaged in learning in years to come. Many professionals in the Halton District School Board provide support to students with special needs.
