About Us


About ErinoakKids – An Overview

ErinoakKids Centre for Treatment and Development is Ontario’s largest Children's Treatment Centre (CTC) – serving more than 15,000 children with disabilities and their families each year.

Our clients have a wide range of physical and/or developmental disabilities, communication disorders, autism, and some of the children we care for are blind and/or deaf. Serving Halton, Peel, Dufferin – and for some of our services – Waterloo and Wellington – ErinoakKids has approximately 650 staff members and 10 sites from which we provide a comprehensive array of medical, therapy and support services that help children and their families.

Our main services include Autism Services, Communication Services, Infant Hearing Screening, Infant Hearing Services, Medical Services, Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy and Vision Services. Our goal is to help each child we serve to build on his/her unique strengths, and to maximize opportunities for independence, health and well-being. We also help families as they meet the challenges of everyday life.

ErinoakKids works from a family-centred philosophy, and our focus is on the strengths and resilience of our clients and their families. We have close connections throughout our community, and partner with school boards, other service providers, and hospitals in the delivery of care, including SickKids and Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital in Toronto.

The Ontario government funds our mandatory services through its Ministry of Children and Youth Services (MCYS). Additional services at ErinoakKids, beyond those funded by government, are made possible through the generosity of private and corporate donors, as well as the time and expertise of volunteers.

Did you know?

Did you know that by introducing your child to early life skills from ages five to seven (such as helping to make your child’s bed, tidy his or her room, unpack and pack his or her school backpack, and set the table and clear dishes at the end of a meal) is preparing him or her for the responsibility of expanded home and community-based life skills as a young adult?
