We have been asked by the Government to make the following letter publicly available to all families
currently receiving or waiting for these services: occupational therapy, physiotherapy or speech and
language therapy. It speaks to the future integrated delivery of these services, flowing out of the local
planning being done via the Ontario Special Needs Strategy. The planning and proposal development
being undertaken as part of this initiative will continue through to December, 2017. The gradual
introduction of any new service delivery models is anticipated to begin in the Fall of 2018.
