Ontario's Special Needs Strategy
The Ministries of Children and Youth Services, Community and Social Services, Health and Long-Term Care, and Education are implementing a strategy to improve services for children/youth with special needs in Ontario. The Special Needs Strategy will support the vision of “An Ontario where children and youth with special needs get the timely and effective services they need to participate fully at home, at school, in the community, and as they prepare to achieve their goals for adulthood.”
Please visit the Ministry of Children and Youth Services website
for more details.
