Many parents have found it very helpful to provide their child’s new school team with a concise profile of their son or daughter. This is intended as a snapshot only. It does not replace reports or Individual Education Plans that the people who regularly support the student will need to know and understand. However, it can be a valuable tool at preschool, daycare, or school for substitute teachers or assistants. It can also be helpful for those personnel who do not have regular contact with the person but may interact with them on occasion. This could include a school principal, secretary or librarian. Including a photo of the student on the profile page is recommended.

Creating a Medical Profile
ACT has also contributed to the development of a profile that can be used by families in the medical environment, in collaboration with BC Children’s Hospital. See Medical Profile.
