Ontario is reducing wait times and improving how families of children and youth with special needs access the services they need in Niagara.
The Niagara Peninsula Children’s Centre located in St. Catharines will benefit from an additional annual investment of $151,250 to provide children and youth with improved access to rehabilitative services. Children’s treatment centres provide a wide range of services, including physical, occupational, and speech and language therapy. The Ontario government is also committed to expanding access to integrated rehabilitation services in full-day kindergarten classrooms by building on existing pilot programs, to help children with special needs transition into school.
More young people with autism will also benefit from improved access to Intensive Behavioural Intervention therapy, which helps decrease challenging behaviours, increase appropriate behaviours and promote development.
Improving access to services for children and youth with special needs and their families is part of the Ontario government's efforts to build a fair society for the benefit of all and help people with their everyday lives.
