UU直播 Child & Community Resources

UU直播 connects families to quality services and talented professionals in the North

We value trust, integrity, innovation, and resilience, and collaborate with our community to provide families with the programs and supports that they deserve.

For over 30 years we have worked in collaboration with families, referral sources, educators, health care providers, and local community partners in the North to connect families to programs and quality services. We strive to understand the unique needs and strengths of each child, youth, and family that we have the privilege of working with. Our services are based on expertise in applied behaviour analysis, early child development, and on supporting children and youth with transitioning to various settings and life stages. UU直播 offers a wide range of services for children, youth, families, and professionals, to support the inclusion, integration, and wellbeing of children and youth throughout the North Region of Ontario.

Here鈥檚 what some of our families have to say about our services:


鈥淪taff is very helpful, provide educated answers to any questions asked, bilingual staff was helpful for myself; accommodating schedule, and overall, simply happy that there is in fact a service that is available altogether for my children鈥檚 needs.鈥

鈥淔riendly, professional and accommodating.鈥

鈥淒uring the assessments itself, it was well done. The atmosphere and procedure made the experience stress free for my son. The staff was amazing during the entire assessment. She was helpful, friendly, professional, optimistic, and encouraging. From the pre-assessment (intake) session, assessment at CCR, evaluation at the office and observation at school, she made us feel comfortable and positive about the assessment and results.鈥

鈥淭hank you for helping our child and us in helping him.鈥

I was most often in the primary division, however I have taught most grades during my career.听 As a mom of a now 7 year old, I was an avid visitor of the Early On centers throughout the city.听 Being a single mom of a baby that came to me through adoption I did not have time to prepare for motherhood. 听I attended many centers to connect with other new moms and give my son the social interaction he would not have got at home. I saw the benefits for our family and also for other families I got to know. 听听As an educator, I know the importance of the early years.听 I am excited to be part of the Board of CCR during this interesting new phase in a post pandemic time. 听When I am not working, it鈥檚 not uncommon to find me participating in community events, teaching my son to cook or being outside.听
