DO YOU NEED HELP FINDING RESOURCES FOR YOUR CHILD?
As a member of the Special Needs and Moving On Projects you have access to the SNP/MO Support Navigator whose role is to help you find the resources and supports you need.
We know it can be overwhelming to manage all the aspects of modern life while working and raising a family; trying to find help for a child with special needs adds yet another layer of complexity. After all, there are only so many hours in a day! We heard what members had to say about finding resources, and that is how the development of the Disability Supports project and the role of the Support Navigator came into being.
Our disability supports portal, in conjunction with 211s across the country, has launched and the website portal is available to you; and a support navigator is available to assist you in navigating the site and finding disability support resources for you should you need it.
Our Support Navigator, Isabelle Tanner, is based in the small, beautiful, but world-renowned tourist town of Baddeck on Cape Breton Island in Nova Scotia but she can assist members across the country, in both English and French. If you are looking for information on disability supports and services for your child, Isabelle can help you with this.
To date, some of the resources that Isabelle has been able to provide for members includes autism and ADHD/LD resources, speech therapists, behavioural therapists, tutoring agencies, recreational activities and day/summer camps, activities for families, and respite for parents.
