Summer is on its way, and so are camps!
Summer camps offer the opportunity to participate in a variety of programs, such as summer sports (like horseback riding), science, arts, and more! Summer camps offer unique opportunities for growth.
At SCS, we can help families explore summer camp options that may be of interest. To this end, we create each year a list of summer camps that families can use to find out which ones meet their needs and to get more information. You can click on this link to access the list:
Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) can improve the lives of people of any age and various diagnoses, such as developmental disabilities and autism. Experts in this field work with families to determine functional skills for their children to become more independent, as well as collaborate with other professionals in the children’s circle of care to ensure they reach their potential.
Domains that ABA can help with include, but are not limited to:
- Executive functioning (focus, planning, emotional regulation, and more)
- Daily living skills
- Social skills
- Severely interfering behaviours such as aggression and self-injury
The objective of this information session is to help give you an understanding of what ABA actually entails and how it can help you and your family.

New! Housing Navigation in Ottawa
This new section on our website offers information to help you navigate housing and emergency shelter resources in Ottawa.
Learn about the housing continuum
The housing continuum is, at its simplest, the range of housing types available in a community — from homeless on one end, all the way to homeownership on the other. In between lies an assortment of housing options and types, each critically important for different people at different times.
- Emergency Shelters
- Transitional Housing
- Social Housing
- Affordable Rental Housing
- Affordable Home Ownership
- Market Rental Housing
- Market Home Ownership
This housing navigation resource will help you identify where you are on the housing continuum. Based on where you are situated, you may wish to decide to make changes to your housing situation in order to progress along the continuum.
