FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

The following may be questions you have regarding the Children's Treatment Centre and services provided:

What can I expect to happen to the services my child receives once they go to school?
When your child starts school, either your services will be transferred to the North East Community Care Access Centre (NECCAC) for School Health Services (SHS) or, depending on the issues, your child can still receive services at CTC.  Follow-up in the schools is determined on a  a case by case basis depending on therapy needs.  The transition to school process will be discussed with the parent prior to the child starting school and therapists and/or school personnel can assist parents in applying for School Health Services through NECCAC.

Is there somewhere I can go to meet other parents whose children are involved with CTC?
For more information, please contact the CTC Social Worker, at 705-523-7337 ext. 1483.

What supports do each service at CTC offer to families?
The Children's Treatment Centre offers a variety of programs and therapies including occupational therapy, physiotherapy, speech language pathology, and social work intervention.

My child is turning 18, where do we go for adult services?
Preparing for your teen's transition to adult services should begin well before they turn 18. Planning should begin around the age of 14 at school and with all of the service providers involved in your teen's care so that we are ready when the teen turns 18 or leaves chool. You and your teen are encouraged to ask questions and to be part of the planning. Your  teen's therapists, physicians, service coordinator, social worker, and school personnel all play an important role in helping your teen prepare for the transition to adult services.

Please refer to the ​​​Transitions Directory for more information about services offered to adults in our community.

The CanChild website has a resource (KIT: Keeping It Together) that can be downloaded to assist with transition planning.  Click here to obtain more information regarding the CanChild Youth KIT and The KIT.
