Lansdowne Children's Centre
Lansdowne Children’s Centre is a treatment centre for children and youth with physical, developmental or communication needs. We provide specialized care and services to more than 2,600 children, youth and their families annually, from birth until 19 years old. Their special needs may arise from Cerebral Palsy, Spina Bifida, Down Syndrome, Brain Injury, Muscular Dystrophy, Autism and other developmental delays. We offer a wide range of quality, compassionate services at the Centre, in home, in schools and other community settings that provide essential supports and play an important role in enabling our children and youth with special needs to develop to their full potential and enjoy opportunities to fully participate in everyday activities.
Lansdowne Children’s Centre Foundation was established to respond to the increasing demands for specialized therapies for our children with special needs. Lansdowne is predominantly government funded for the majority of our programs; however, our critically-acclaimed therapeutic programs are not. It is the mission of the Foundation to support the Centre by raising public awareness about our programs, in order to ensure the financial support and success of our services. Funds raised through the Foundation directly benefit our children and youth, who receive optimal care and support from the Centre. Our community supports specialized equipment purchases, recreational and respite programs, literacy programs and support groups.
