Helping Children and Youth with Special Needs in Niagara Achieve Their Goals

Ontario Taking Action to Reduce Wait Times and Improve Services

Ontario is investing $285,500 in the Niagara Children’s Centre to reduce wait times and enhance children’s rehabilitation services for children and youth with special needs, and their families.

 

The province is investing an additional $5 million annually in children’s treatment centres to expand access to physiotherapy, occupational therapy and speech-language therapy for up to an additional 2,000 children annually across Ontario.

 

Ontario is also investing an additional $1.25 million in one-time funding to help children’s treatment centres further reduce waitlists for assessments.

 

Improving access to services for children and youth with special needs is part of the government’s plan to invest in people, build modern infrastructure and support a dynamic business climate.
