All programs are offered in Milton and Georgetown locations. Each program has a junior and senior age grouping. 

 

These programs support the needs of children/youth with a developmental need. Many display complex needs, including requiring behavioral support and intervention. CLNH supports individuals’ needs by hiring trained, experienced staff, equipping our physical spaces with the equipment and materials that meet the children/youth's physical, cognitive, social, and sensory needs. We believe that community inclusion is important and ensure that the children/youth are visiting local parks, pools, libraries, and attending community events, to name a few.

 

Ontario Autism Program – Fee For Service programming remotely via Telehealth Services and in person. Services include Evidence Based Behavioural Services and Additional Autism Services and Supports, both of which are eligible to Purchase with a Childhood Budget, Interim One Time Funding, or private funds. If you are interested in receiving services and support, email oap@clnh.on.ca to start the process to get the support you are looking for. 

 

Community Living North Halton believes in a community where everyone belongs and is valued! We look forward to seeing you soon!
