How are referrals managed? Is SBRS service ‘first-come, first-serve’?

Your child’s needs are important to us. Each referral we receive is reviewed by our team and prioritized according to urgency.

If a child/youth is unable to safely attend school without OT/PT services immediately involved, the referral is prioritized.   

All other kids and youth will be placed on the waiting list based on their assessed level of need and in the order that their referral was received. Waitlists vary based on the type of service that is needed. A child may wait up to one to three years for SBRS to begin. We will work hard to have your child seen as quickly as possible.
