WAITING FOR HELP AND INCLUSION

  • Several years of flat budgets for contracted early intervention services and the Ministry for Children and Family Development have resulted in cuts to services for children with special needs.
  • As a consequence, during crucial early months and years of development, thousands of children with special needs in BC face long wait times for therapies, other services and for supported child development spaces (the inclusion of children with special needs in child care programs).
  • Waiting for needed services cause unnecessary stress for families and permanent impairments to affected children.

Q: If elected, will your party increase funding in order to reduce wait times for young children needing early intervention services?
