CTN helps to build brighter futures for over 23,000 children and youth with disabilities and other developmental needs.
CTN and the services provided by our network partners are funded by Ontario’s Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services (MCCSS) and are free for families. However, there may be costs associated with provision of special equipment, materials or supplies needed by some children. Some children also require customized equipment, which is sometimes accessed through Ontario’s Assistive Devices Program (ADP). If you are interested in purchasing a piece of equipment for your child or want to learn more about customized equipment, we encourage you to speak with your service provider prior to making any purchases. Service providers can share the detailed rules on Ontario’s ADP and help ensure equipment is the best choice to meet your child and family’s needs.
We are committed to providing our clients and their families with high quality services. We welcome your feedback through our Formal Complaints Policy (complaints and compliments). Please visit our policies for instructions on how to share your feedback.
CTN supports children, 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 and adapted skating.
The Equipment Loan Program provides access to specialized recreation, therapy and complex clinical equipment so children 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.
