ErinoakKids Centre for Treatment and Development is Ontario’s largest Children’s Treatment Centre (CTC) – serving more than 26,000 children and youth with disabilities and their families each year. 

Our main services include Autism Services, Communication Services, Infant Hearing Services, Medical Services, Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy and Vision Services. Our goal is to help each child we serve to build on their 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, Community and Social Services. 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. 

Mission Statement

Mission: The mission of ErinoakKids is to help children and youth with physical, developmental and communication disabilities achieve optimal levels of independence, learning, health and well-being.
