Enhancing Supports for Children and Youth with Special Needs in Algoma

Published on : Tuesday, October 8, 2013

Tourism-Ontario-300x131Ontario is reducing wait times and improving how families of children and youth with special needs access the services they need in Sault Ste. Marie and the Algoma region.


As part of a $5 million annual investment, Ontario is expanding the family-centred Children’s Rehabilitation Information System to the Children’s Rehabilitation Centre Algoma as well as four other children’s treatment centres in northern Ontario.


As a result, more children and youth will receive improved access to rehabilitative services, such as physical, occupational and speech therapy.


The Ontario government is also committed to expanding access to integrated rehabilitation services in full-day kindergarten classrooms by building on pilot programs.


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 plan to invest in people.


The province is also focused on investing in infrastructure and fostering a dynamic and innovative business environment.
