Our Clinical Services helps families, caregivers and professionals care for and support children and adults with developmental disabilities.
Our goal is to support these children and adults to live in the community by providing specialized clinical and professional services that promote independence and quality of life – and we accomplish it through three main strategies:
- We determine and enhance abilities and coping capacities by providing a functional and specific assessment on each individual.
- We enhance care-provider capacities and abilities by providing information and training, modeling new strategies and developing programs.
- We enhance service coordination for individuals and families and promote follow-up with caregivers by providing verbal and written information and progress.
For adult clients: Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy, Speech-Language Pathology, Registered Dietitians, the Feeding Swallowing Nutrition Team (FSNT) and the Seating Mobility Clinic (SMC) will be accepted from physicians and from clinicians working in schools, healthcare settings and private practice.
Community Support Workers may make referrals for any of the services above, as well as psychological testing and Family Care Program social work.
Referrals for children’s services are accepted from Family Support Workers only.
For psychological testing referrals, the original, signed referral form and a completed consent form are required. All other referrals will be accepted by fax or mail.
