Some children and youth require special attention and more resources to support their growth and development to adulthood.
Children with special needs include those with physical, sensory, cognitive and learning challenges as well as those with mental health issues. Children with problems that are due to social, cultural, linguistic or family factors also have special needs.
This section will take you to sources of information and resources that can assist special needs children.
