In February 2019, the province of Ontario introduced a new model of health care delivery to enable families to purchase therapy services for their children. This new model of healthcare delivery for the Children’s Treatment Centre of Chatham-Kent (CTC-CK) enables all children and families with special needs, regardless of diagnosis, to have access to client-funded services including:
- Behaviour Services
- Occupational Therapy
- Speech and Language Pathology
Who We Serve:
All children and youth, up to graduation from high school, whether they have an identified need or diagnosis, are welcome to purchase occupational therapy, behavior services and/or speech and language therapy.
Does this Effect the Government Funded Services My Child May Be Eligible For?
Families can be assured that the CTC-CK will continue to provide government-funded services, which means that families will be able to access services they are eligible for at no cost and regardless of diagnosis. It is important to note that government-funded services are limited and there are waiting lists for some services.
If you are interested in learning more about government-funded services or are curious about wait times, please call 519-354-0520.
How to Register for Client Funded Services:
Please call the Children’s Treatment Centre of Chatham-Kent (CTC-CK) at 519-354-0520. A member of our Service Navigation team will provide information on government-funded services your child may be eligible to receive, answer your questions, provide more information about Client-Funded Services, and help you get started.
Many insurance companies offer coverage or financial assistance for health services such as Speech/Language Therapy. All receipts for services are issued with the clinicians’ credentials and applicable college registration number for easy submission to insurance companies. For more information on insurance coverage, please contact your insurance provider.
