It’s time for a change & TOGETHER we can do this!

As the Children’s DIsability Support Network continues to grow and works hard to be the HUB THAT CONNECTS FAMILIES to the RESOURCES and ORGANIZATIONS  that already exist in our community,  we would love to hear your feedback,  comments and any ideas about how we can make the CDSNetwork the best it can possibly be for our community



We Want You to Get Involved!

If you feel passionate about helping families with children with disabilities and share our vision of a more accessible and inclusive world (we can start with just our city first...no need for world domination just yet -wink-) you would be an asset to our team!

Would you like to help us bridge the gap between the unnecessary confusion and stress of trying to navigate the “Special Needs” system and everything that comes with it?  

Join us TODAY so families can get what they need TOMORROW

Message us and tell us how you think you could help.  Is there an area within our organization that you feel you could be an asset?  We would love to hear from you so please contact us.

There are many facets to our organization from: 

* CDSNetwork helping families with support, information and resources;

* R.I.S.E. -Resilient Individuals Supporting Each Other which is a  bi-monthly support group 

* our soon to open I  Can Play 2 Adapted Play & Sensory Centre where we will need expertise and experience for everything that goes into creating and building the facility. 

We have our professionals in place but we really feel that community input will help create a place that will cater to so many more children then if it was formed through only one set of eyes.
