“Children and families go through many changes as they grow up. These times of change are often called transitions. Children face change when they enter kindergarten, when they become a teen, and later when they become an adult. Starting a new program, working with new agencies and care providers, and making new friends are just some of the changes that lie ahead. To get ready for these changes, planning must start early.” (Taken from Bloorview Kids Rehab-Life Skills Institute).
Niagara Children’s Centre recognizes that transition times may be stressful for families and has therefore developed processes and protocols with our various partners to ensure that transitions are as seamless as possible. Parent Education sessions are provided that will inform you of those processes and protocols.
If you would like further information or support around your child’s various transitions please speak to your Team Social Worker.
