We need 2,300 clicks by the June 7th election.
Children are brought to the CTC-CK for physiotherapy, speech therapy, adapted recreation, occupational therapy, audiology, music therapy, respite, social work and autism services.
Every year, the CTC-CK provides therapy to over 3,000 Chatham-Kent children, in 15 communities, from birth through age 21. That is 1 in 9 kids in Chatham-Kent, and this number is expected to grow to 1 in 5 kids by 2019.
There are nearly 1,300 kids on our waitlist, and our current building does not meet Ontario accessibility standards (AODA). There is not enough therapy space, charting and office space for staff, or storage space for our equipment. We need a new 50,000 sq. ft. facility to help Chatham-Kent children, of all abilities, reach their full potential.
Children who receive specialized therapy at an early age have a better chance of reaching their full potential later in life.
