Building Brighter Futures Together: Children’s Treatment Network (CTN) supports over 25,000 children and youth with special needs in their homes, communities and schools. We provide intake, service navigation and coordinated service planning, assessment and diagnostic services, specialized clinics and rehabilitation services, including physiotherapy, occupational therapy and speech language therapy.
CTN offers services through contracted public and private partner organizations in the education, health and community sectors. CTN supports families in York Region and Simcoe County for all services through 10 shared service sites, offers school-based rehabilitation services in an expanded catchment area including Central and West Toronto and also offers assessment and diagnostic services within Dufferin, Halton, Peel, Waterloo and Wellington. Through its innovative network model, CTN’s commitment to providing family-centred care is anchored by an electronic client record that is shared across its partner organizations and provides the foundation for integrated plans of care and services.
CTN is accredited through CARF International, meeting internationally recognized organizational and program standards and signaling its commitment to quality by continually improving services, encouraging feedback and serving the community.
In 2005, Children’s Treatment Network (CTN) was incorporated and mandated by the Ministry of Children and Youth Services (now the Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services) to provide children and youth with multiple special needs in Simcoe County and York Region with expanded and enhanced services, build capacity across existing organizations and champion system change to better serve families.
Kinark- Caregivers Converse Support Group - "Advice to my Younger Self"
Research has shown that caregivers of children with autism experience challenges that can lead to stress and isolation. Finding the time to care for your own physical and mental well being, meet others, and speak about your experiences can be challenging. Facilitated by our social worker, our caregiver support group aims to empower caregivers of children with autism by creating a safe space where you can share your experiences, as well as gain understanding and support from other caregivers with similar experiences.
