As a not-for-profit organization funded by the Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services (MCSS), Children’s Treatment Network is committed to being fully accountable, compliant and transparent to all our stakeholders regarding reimbursement of business related expenses.
Children's Treatment Network is committed to a child and family-centred approach to planning and delivering services and supports to children with multiple special needs. A key component of family-centred care is developing a close partnership with families to ensure there are opportunities for families to be actively engaged in their child’s care and in the ongoing development of the Network.
The Family Engagement Council, consisting of family members and Network professionals, provides advice and guidance on all aspects of the Network including operations and the planning and delivery of services and supports for kids and 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.
