Alternative Educational Resources Ontario (AERO)

PDSB’s Alternate Educational Resources Ontario (AERO) department develops and provides learning materials and media in accessible formats for elementary, secondary, and post secondary pupils with perceptual disabilities. 

AERO is a bilingual web-based digital repository operated by the Ministry of Education in partnership with the Ministry of Colleges and Universities.  

The mandate of AERO is to provide alternate format text to students with perceptual disabilities who attend publicly funded educational institutions in Ontario. AERO enables students with perceptual disabilities to access educational materials in a format they require and in a timely manner. 

For example, a student with vision impairment can have their textbooks converted to Braille. 

The AERO digital repository allows the public to browse through the AERO catalogue. School advisors who register themselves and their students can order material directly from the repository. Materials requested are loaned free of charge for the academic school year.
