The P4P Planning Network is excited to welcome you to a NEW space on our website designed just for you. Educators play a critical role in supporting the learning and wellbeing of children and youth from infancy to early adulthood. 

But, do we really know what happens to our students once they leave high school? 

Did you know: There are approximately 300,000 children and youth in Ontario with a disability. In general, people with a disability are less likely than those without a disability to graduate high school. Statistically, 40% of children and youth with an intellectual or developmental disability in Canada do not graduate high school with a diploma.

This means that your students will likely experience


But we know that life can be SO different for your students! All it takes is…

The P4P Planning Network is an information HUB with dozens of FREE, value-based resources that can help families build their capacity to make informed decisions and plan for their children’s future. 


All parents are encourage to do things like create a college fund, teach their kids a healthy lifestyle and take steps to prepare them for life as adults. Parents who have a child with a disability must do the same but the process is much more complex. Our resources make the process clearer, and more manageable for families. By sharing key resources from the Planning Network, you can help prompt families to know how and when to initiate the planning of various aspects of their child's life. 

Evidence shows that families who think ahead, stay informed and actively participate in decision-making nurture endless possibilities for their loved one. 

Your support is essential.
