Not every region in the GTA has a specific system in place to integrate children with special support needs into the community (child care, parks and rec programs, camps and other programs). The City of Toronto, for example, has trained Special Needs Resource Staff available to child care centres. For regions that don’t have this support, Stepping Stones offers the following services as a part of our Community Outreach.

 

  • Program Consultation

We work with you to create a service plan tailored to your needs, providing you with practical solutions. We support multiple programs including child care centres, aquatic programs and camps.

 

  • Accessibility Assessments

Is your program or building accessible to all? What needs to be changed to ensure accessibility? Let us perform an assessment and provide recommendations to make your program more accessible.

 

  • Referral & Individual Consultation

Do you have a child in your program that would benefit from our in-home services? Need support on how to work with a child in your program? Does the family need extra support to receive funding for their child’s special need? We can help! It is important to note parental consent is required in order to refer a child to our program. Please download our referral form and parental consent here

 

  • Workshops & Training Opportunities

Our practical, highly informative workshops provide hands on training needed to enable every child in your program to learn and thrive, click here for more information.

Jennifer presented herself as a caring person and a well-spoken professional who worked with the lead teacher and the other staff to successfully meet the child’s goals and needs. Her knowledge and insight was evident from the various techniques and visual aids she used, and we learned a lot from her. I would recommend Jennifer and Stepping Stones Child and Family Services to anyone who is looking for a consultant to offer suggestions and support in the classroom.
