School Based Rehabilitation Services (SBRS)

The School Based Rehabilitation Services program exists to ensure that children with rehabilitation needs are able to attend school, participate in school activities and receive instruction.  Therapy is provided in the school setting by contracted service providers and includes: Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy and Speech Language Pathology.  Services involve short-term consultation, training and intervention for specific rehabilitation needs.  Referrals to this program must be made by the school. If you feel that this service would be appropriate for your child, but they have not been referred, please discuss this with your school. The school will work with you to determine if it would be appropriate for your child to be referred for this service.

The provincial government is transferring oversight of School Based Rehabilitation Services in publicly funded schools from Local Health Integration Networks (LHINs) to Children’s Treatment Centres (CTCs) across Ontario between November 2018 and January 2019.  Children’s Treatment Network (CTN) will be managing these services in Simcoe, Muskoka, Central Toronto and York Region. There will be no change to the service providers for children currently receiving services in publicly funded schools.
