Special Needs Strategy
The children’s service system is complex, given the involvement of multiple Ministries and organizations, making access to services and information extremely confusing and time consuming for families. Many services are inadequate with limited eligibility criteria and long wait lists. In addition, transitioning children and youth with physical disabilities between service providers can require duplicate assessments and result in long delays in service.
The provincial Special Needs Strategy has started to address some of the issues including coordinated service planning and integration of rehabilitation services, but there is a lot more to do. However, there are still multi-year waits for occupational therapy, physiotherapy and speech-language pathology services.
What are you prepared to do to complete the implementation of the Special Needs Strategy? How will you help secure more funding to ensure children and youth with physical disabilities get the vital therapy services they need?
