Who Receives Specialized Services?

Specialized services is provided based on the individual needs of the child and family when:

  • the child has a severe disability that is significantly limiting their ability to function in normal daily living activities
  • the family needs to provide continual and ongoing assistance and supervision to ensure their child’s safety and ability to participate in normal daily living activities
  • the child has critical service needs in two or more areas, including behaviours, communication and social skills, physical abilities, cognitive abilities, or self-help skills, and
  • the child's and family's service needs can not be met by other programs or services.

The term “severe disability” refers to the degree to which the child is limited in their ability to function in normal daily living activities and the extra care demands this creates for their family.
