Specialized Services

Specialized services are intended to support families of children with severe disabilities to acquire specific skills and learn strategies to help promote their child’s development and participation in normal daily living activities at home and in the community.

A team of professionals that may include aides, speech-language pathologists, occupational therapists, physical therapists, and/or psychologists assists parents with acquiring specific skills and strategies to help manage difficult behaviours, support their child’s participation in social activities, or teach their child new skills.

Specialized services are individualized to meet each family’s needs and priorities, complement any other supports and services that a family already has in place, and are coordinated through a single service plan.
