Service Coordination is a support offered to families through the Kids Pathways Peel (KPP) partnership. KPP is not an organization, but rather a network of community partners that provides Service Coordination supports in Brampton, Caledon and Mississauga.  Families who require assistance with the coordinating or navigating of supports and/or services can connect to KPP for Service Coordination.  Service Coordination is a framework of services in which support varies in intensity based on the child’s and family’s strengths, needs and circumstances.  Families and Service Coordinators work together to set goals that assist families to achieve and maintain a quality of life consistent with their values, priorities, strengths and preferences.

Families with children or youth with special needs who are under the age of 18 can be referred or can self-refer to KPP.  CDRCP acts as the front door to Service Coordination within the Region of Peel and provides families with information and recommendations about services and/or supports.  To determine eligibility, learn more about the process or to complete an intake please connect via:

Special Services at Home (SSAH): Special Services at home helps families who are caring for a child with a developmental and/or physical disability.

Some people may become more withdrawn and disengaged while others may display frequent agitation and even aggressive behaviours towards themselves or others.
