  • Interactions Program

    Interactions Program

    Interactions programming supports students with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). ASD impacts how people understand what they see, hear and sense. This lifelong disability can result in difficulties in communication, social relationships, behaviour or learning. Although some students with ASD achieve at grade level, many have uneven or delayed achievement.


    • Improve communication, social interaction and behaviour while developing academic skills


    • Demonstrate growth in communication skills
    • Demonstrate growth in building and maintaining relationships, and understanding social situations
    • Demonstrate growth in managing frustration and problem-solving
    • Improved ability to handle change or challenging emotions (e.g., anxiety)
    • Development of life skills to support independent living and employment


    • Structured environment with regular routines
    • Smaller classes for more targeted instruction
    • Visual aids, concrete examples and hands-on activities
    • Frequent praise and other meaningful rewards to help students adopt positive behaviours and attitudes
    • Opportunities to join other classes for instruction in a student’s areas of strength


    To be eligible for programming, students must be:

    • 5 ½ to 19 years old on September 1
    • Clinically diagnosed with ASD
    • Demonstrating stereotyped behaviours, and have severe impairment in social interactions and communication


    All Edmonton Public Schools programming is based on curriculum determined by Alberta Education. Students enrolled in Interactions will receive the same high-quality education offered in all of our programs.

  • Pre- Kindergarten Program

    Pre- Kindergarten Program

    Duggan School now offers the Pre-Kindergarten Program!

    It is the goal of our Pre-Kindergarten Program to foster the necessary growth and development that will enable a child to deal competently with his or her environment and future learning experiences. As a program we recognize that this is a reciprocal process involving both home and school. Families are viewed as an integral part of the education process and are invited to be involved in all aspects of their child's educational planning.

     Pre-Kindergarten builds children's strengths and skills in a playful, language-rich environment. As much as possible, teaching occurs in the context of play situations and learning centres. We also recognize the need for developmentally appropriate learning and when necessary, individual instruction. Duggan's Pre-Kindergarten Program provides a wide range of experiences that capitalize on a child's strengths.  

    Interested in Pre-Kindergarten for the 2022-2023 school year? 


    Pre-Kindergarten is for children with severe developmental delays who are between the ages of 2 years and 8 months and 4 years and 8 months old by September 1 of the year they are attending, as per Alberta Education criteria. 

    Pre-Kindergarten may be available to children for one or two years of programming, depending on children’s needs and eligibility.


    To register for Pre-Kindergarten, your child will need to meet program eligibility requirements based on an assessment or diagnosis from a healthcare provider.

    If your child has a report (dated after March 1) from Alberta Health Services or another healthcare provider, or is scheduled to receive an assessment after March 1:

    • Email your child’s assessment and contact information to PreK@epsb.ca.
