Our staff and volunteers help people set and meet their own goals.
Every child goes through good and bad timesIt is a part of growing up and learning important skills for becoming independent. When sad, angry, fearful, or defiant behaviours last for a long time, they may be a sign of a bigger problem. About one in every five children in Ontario suffers from a mental, emotional or behavioural illness that will affect their daily routine at home and school.
Children with developmental disabilities learn skills in a different wayBabies, infants and toddlers all have natural stages of growth that parents and doctors follow. When a child is diagnosed with a developmental disability such as Down Syndrome, Autism, or Global Developmental Delay it means they will develop skills differently from other children. Children who are at risk for a developmental delay should be identified early.
