Specialized Services for Children and Youth (SSCY) is an initiative focused on the integration and where possible, co-location of services for Manitoba children and youth with disabilities and special needs. The initiative addresses the many recommendations made over the past decade to improve the coordination and integration of services for children and families. It is also in keeping with the direction that the provincial government and the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority (WRHA) have been taking in integrating services and ensuring improved client centred service.
SSCY is an alliance of government departments, the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority (WRHA) and various service provider agencies. The three supporting provincial departments are Manitoba Family Services & Housing, Manitoba Education, Citizenship & Youth and Manitoba Health.
The service provider agencies are St. Amant Centre, the Society for Manitobans with Disabilities, the Rehabilitation Centre for Children, Community Respite Services, Central Speech & Hearing Clinic, Canadian National Institute for the Blind, Mount Carmel Clinic, Manitoba Adolescent Treatment Centre, The Movement Centre and Open Access Resource Centre. Services provided by the WRHA as part of SSCY are Child Development Clinic, Children’s Hospital OT and PT, Home Care, and Communications Disorders. All participants are represented on the Intersectoral Working Group (IWG) which is co-chaired by a Family Services & Housing and a WRHA representative.
