This program provides occupational therapy and physiotherapy services to school-aged children and youth with special needs to assist them in meeting their educational goals and to help them achieve their highest level of independent functioning within their home, school and community settings.
The SAT Program is jointly funded and administered by the Ministries of Education and MCFD, in partnership with boards of education, independent school authorities and MCFD’s Service Delivery Areas (SDAs). The SAT program operates within a rehabilitation system that involves 16 therapy-related programs and services for children from birth to adulthood, and an array of funding arrangements across the three Ministries of Education, Health and MCFD. Speech Language Pathology services are provided to school aged children through the Ministry of Education. Please contact your local school board for more details.
