LANSDOWNE CHILDREN’S CENTRE TO ASSUME PRESCHOOL SPEECH SERVICES IN HALDIMAND-NORFOLK

Lansdowne Children’s Centre [LCC] is enhancing its ability to provide integrated services for Haldimand and Norfolk children with special needs.

With the support of the Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services, LCC is adding responsibility for the Preschool Speech and Language program to its range of services supporting children and youth in Brant, Haldimand and Norfolk with physical, communications and/or developmental challenges.

LCC is working on continuity plans with the Haldimand-Norfolk Health Unit, which has delivered these services until ending its arrangement, effective September 30, 2019.

Services will continue to be provided to Haldimand and Norfolk families in sites throughout both counties. HN Health Unit notified parents of children currently in the programs or on the wait list of this change.

Those with specific questions about their children and these changes can contact the Lansdowne Speech Manager at 1- 800-454-7186 ext. 308. The addition of Speech Therapy to Occupational Therapy and Physiotherapy services LCC delivers in Haldimand and Norfolk enhances the ability to provide integrated care for local families requiring multiple pediatric rehabilitation services. LCC collaborates with a range of local agencies also supporting children and youth to reach their potential across their lifespan.

Rita Marie Hadley, executive director of Lansdowne Children’s Centre

“LCC has been the lead agency for the Brant Preschool Speech and Language Program since its inception and we are thrilled to be re-branding the new Brant-Haldimand-Norfolk Preschool Speech and Language Program,” said Rita-Marie Hadley. “This is an excellent early intervention initiative that provides services to families of preschool children with communication delays.”

LCC is celebrating its 45th anniversary in 2019 as our communities’ Children’s Treatment Centre. A member of Empowered Kids Ontario, and awarded Accreditation Canada’s Exemplary Standing, Lansdowne Children’s Centre annually serves 2600+ young people from birth-19 and their families across Brant, Haldimand and Norfolk. 250 staff work at the Centre, in family homes, schools, 29 childcare centres, a Simcoe site and 18 outreach locations as well as its Kids’ Country Inn [providing overnight respite for children/youth who are medically fragile or technologically dependent].
