We provide therapy services that assist children who are delayed in their development to develop the skills they need in everyday life such as walking, talking, and activities of daily living.
The Centre was incorporated in 1972 and opened in October 1975 in Peterborough. The Centre now has offices in Minden, Campbellford, Cobourg, Lindsay and Peterborough to serve children in the counties of Haliburton, Northumberland, Peterborough and the City of Kawartha Lakes.
Who We Are
The Centre is a non-profit organization governed by a volunteer Board of Directors. The Ministry of Children and Youth Services and the City of Peterborough fund most of the services provided by the Centre. Additionally, the Centre provides School Health Support Services (therapy at school) under contract with the two local Access Centres. The Centre also has a Foundation with the sole purpose to fundraise on behalf of the Centre.
