CTN is funded by Ontario’s Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services (MCCSS) and supports over 29,000 kids and youth with disabilities and developmental needs (up to age 19 or high school graduation) each year based on the family’s strengths, goals and needs. Together with our service partners, we work with kids, youth and their families to support development and well-being. We provide intake, service navigation, rehabilitation services, specialized clinics and coordinated service planning, as well as assessment and diagnostic services. CTN also provides some autism services. CTN supports families primarily in York Region and Simcoe County and delivers school-based rehabilitation services in Central and West Toronto.
CTN supports kids, youth and families by focusing on the F-words for Child Development. 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 sledge hockey, hiking and adapted skating.
The Equipment Loan Program provides access to specialized recreation, therapy and complex clinical equipment so kids and youth with disabilities and developmental needs can participate with their family and friends at home and in the community. If your child is involved with an occupational therapist (OT) or physiotherapist (PT), speak to them first about which equipment would be most appropriate for your child.
