Supporting children with developmental disabilities in Lennox & Addington
Direction 1 of Strategic Plan – Strengthening Families
A worker is helping a family with a special needs child in Lennox & Addington County get the services they need. In Lennox & Addington, we provide counseling, advocacy, case management services, and planning for children with developmental and/or physical disabilities living in their family homes. This can include applications for various funding sources, support, and advocacy with education-related issues and medical appointments, providing referrals and information regarding community services, assistance in obtaining respite services for parents, long-term planning, and referral to adult services, and more. We also operate Kool Kamp, a unique community-based day camp experience for kids with special needs during March Break and in the summer. Every family needs help, but sometimes families with special needs kids need more. We’re there in Lennox & Addington to be that help.
