Supporting the full range of Kids with Needs Needs

Caring for a child with diverse or special needs can be both a rewarding and an overwhelming process. Planning, organizing, communicating and coordinating care for a child with special needs can also be a very complex task and time consuming. Children with diverse and special needs are defined as having one or more chronic physical, developmental, emotional, psychological, mental health or behavioural conditions that require health or social services beyond that required by children generally (The Ontario Ministry of Children and Youth)

Supporting and caring for kids with diverse or special needs can involve working with a diverse range of professionals offering a broad range of healthcare and social services. Many families seek support for children, who are managing issues related to Autism, spectrum disorders, Cerebral Palsy, Down Syndrome, Spina Bifida, cognitive delays or conditions, developmental disabilities, physical disabilities, epilepsy, traumatic brain injuries, learning differences or disabilities, speech delays or language delays, Attention Deficit Disorders (ADD), visual or hearing impairments, chronic health conditions or mental health issues, as well as other childhood special needs.

eAdvocate is dedicated to helping you find the best Caring Professionals to support your children’s diverse and special needs. Caring for a loved one is often a team effort and requires effective communication and coordination between patients, their families, friends, informal caregivers and professionals. eAdvocate helps you find local caring professionals and assemble the best care team to meet all your unique caring needs.
