December 3rd is International Day of Persons with Disabilities. 

December 3rd is International Day of Persons with Disabilities. This day aims to promote an understanding of disability issues and mobilize support for the dignity, rights and well-being of persons with disabilities. It also seeks to increase awareness of changes to help support the integration of persons with disabilities in every aspect of political, social, economic and cultural life. You can learn more about this day and access resources on the United Nations website

At Children’s Treatment Network (CTN), our vision is to create a vibrant community where all kids, youth and families belong. 

CTN supports families through a variety of different programs and services. Our Community and Family Coordinators (CFCs) create and host events that promote belonging for kids and youth with disabilities and developmental needs, as well as their families.  

These events focus on CanChild's framework of the F-words for Child Development. We believe that every child with varying abilities has the right to have fun, enjoy friends, function as they are, access fitness, plan for their future and join in family activities like going grocery shopping, riding a bike or going to the park! You can view all upcoming CTN events on our website calendar
