The Centre has been providing services for children with special needs and their families for 62 years.
The Centre provides specialized pediatric medical rehabilitation services and supports to 2,700 children with special needs and their families through 30,000 service sessions per year in Delta, Surrey, South Surrey, White Rock, Langley and other areas of the Lower Mainland. While we are able to serve 2,700 children each year, as many as 25,000 South Fraser children and youth may have SOME FORM of developmental disability and 3,000 may have SEVERE disabilities.
We are a “one-stop shop” for children with special needs and their families with specialized paediatric psychologists, family service and parent support workers, Fetal Alcohol Disorder Syndrome key workers, occupational therapists, speech-language pathologists, physiotherapists, early childhood educators, supported child development consultants and teachers, recreation specialists, specialized equipment technicians, a dietician and a doctor specializing in developmental paediatrics.
Our newest program is Sophie’s Place Child Advocacy Centre. Sophie's Place is a Child Advocacy Centre focussed on providing specialized serfvices to physically, mentally or sexually abused children in a child-friendly setting. It is the result of significant collaboration between the Surrey RCMP, Ministry of Children and Family Development, City of Surrey, Ministry of Justice Victim Services and Crime Prevention, and The Centre for Child Development. Sophie's Place Child Advocacy Centre enables the collaborating agencies to respond to child abuse in a compassionate and highly integrated manner. Sophie's Place Child Advocacy Centre is named for the Centre's patron, Sophie Tweed-Simmons.
