We do offer speech pathologist / Occupational therapy and physio therapy on site. This must be arranged ahead of time with the Director and all appropriate paper work needs to be filled in before services can start as these are a Fee for Service and can be paid through benefits or privately. Should you choose to use our multi-disciplinary team we will help to arrange this according to your child’s needs, however if you choose to source other services outside of Streetsville Children’s Centre we will support and work with your family to help you with this process. We have several free community programs that we can asses for help. A Resource for Family document is available for you to take which has contact numbers and website information. If your child has a one on one during the hours they attend school and their one on one teacher is away, Streetsville Children’s Centre and Academy will make every effort to assist during this time, but if a qualified Special Needs teacher is unavailable to assist your child you will be asked to keep your child at home. This is for the safety of your child and the other children attending. We also offer the only in school based IBI program with Shining Through Centers.Streetsville Children’s Centre is associated with several specialized children's agencies, and referrals can be made upon request. If your child has special needs and requires assistance from any of our family services we will set up a 6 week check up will be booked with your family and with the classroom teachers and directors. We strive to be transparent with our families by providing help to intergrate your child into our classroom. When meeting for our 6 week check up we may discuss different options and services that may benefit your child such as Educational Assessment, Speech Assessment, OT or PT. Alongside these services we also have Shining Through Center to provide IBI services one on one or within the classroom. This is to help not only the family but the classroom and the teachers and will help provide support for your child. If your child has a one on one during the hours they attend school and their one on one teacher is away, Streetsville Children’s Centre will make every effort to assist during this time, but if a qualified Special Needs teacher is unavailable to assist your child you will be asked to keep your child at home.
