Survey of Parents of Children with Disabilities

This is survey for the parents* of children, youth and adults with disabilities who attend or are involved in educational settings in Manitoba, spanning from Early Childhood Education, through Nursery/Kindergarten to Grade 12 and to Post-Secondary Education.

The survey will ask you a series of questions related to you and your son or daughter's experience. The survey will ask you about one particular child. If you have more than one child with a disability, we encourage you to complete a separate survey for each child.

The survey takes as little as 5 minutes to complete although we encourage you to provide as much information as you are able.

The survey was developed and is being conducted by Barrier-Free Manitoba and Education Solutions Manitoba to learn more about the barriers people with disabilities face in Manitoba when it comes to their experiences within the education system. It was created in response to the recent call for the development and enforcement of an Accessible Education Standard under landmark Accessibility for Manitobans Act.  

There are separate surveys for other educational stakeholders:
  • The survey for students with a disability from Grade 7 up to post-secondary is posted here.
  • The survey for educators and others who work within education systems is posted here.
We ask that you encourage all the persons you know affected by disabilities in our educational systems to complete one of these surveys.

* Including biological, adopted, foster, legal guardians, primary caregivers of children/youth and adults with disabilities
