Funding for therapies and home care assistance


(Markham)

Hi,


I have a special need child. I was wondering if there is any aid provided for her speech therapy by any organization. Also since I and my wife work full time we require someone to take care of my daughter. Is there any organization that help in finding and funding the help to take care of her at home while we are away at work.

Also please let me know of any useful resources. I have just got to know my daughter is special need and not sure where to go from here.

Thanks,

B Doshi

You could look into having your child be seen by a developmental pediatrician. You would most likely need a referral from the family doctor. Here is a link to the York Regions services as well.

My daughter receives treatment for Cerebral Palsy and a wonderful place called Erinoak Kids Centre For Treatment and Development. www.erinoakkids.ca

I hope this helps you.
