About Child & Community Resources

Connecting your family to quality services and talented professionals in the North is what we do. We value trust, integrity, learning and relationships, and collaborate with our community to get you the programs and supports that you deserve.

For 25 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 understand the unique needs and strengths of each child, youth and family that we have the privilege of working with. Our family-centered approach to care means that we support you by connecting you to what’s best for your child.

Our services are based on expertise in applied behaviour analysis, early child development, and on supporting your child or youth with transitioning to various settings and life stages. Child & Community Resources/Ressources pour l’Enfance et la Communauté (CCR/REC) 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.

You have access to a wide range of specialized services including:

  • Behavioural Consultation
  • Behavioural Treatment
  • Respite
  • Workshops
  • Group Services

You also have access to publicly funded services, including:

  • EarlyON Child and Family Centres
  • Early Learning and Child Care Services and Respite Services
  • Diagnostic Assessment Services – Sudbury / Manitoulin District
  • Regional Diagnostic Hub
  • Respite

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


“Staff 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’s needs.”

“Friendly, professional and accommodating.”

“During 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.”

“Thank you for helping our child and us in helping him.”
