Special Needs Services

The Special Needs Consultation & Coordination Program of the Boys & Girls Club of East Scarborough supports the delivery of quality child care service to young children regardless of their exceptionality.  A multi-focus approach is used by the Consultant to provide service which may include; assisting the parent in obtaining services and resources specific to their child’s needs, developing partnerships between the parent and child care program in supporting the needs of the child and supporting the child care program staff through ongoing consultation.


Services of the Special Needs Consultation & Coordination Program are FREE as they are funded by Toronto Children’s Services as part of their Every Child Belongs model and the Ministry of Education.


The Special Needs Consultation & Coordination Program serves child care programs, as designated by Toronto Children’s Services, largely in the area of Galloway, the Guild and Scarborough Village.
