Children with Special Needs

Support To Families with Special Needs 

Military Family Services recognizes that families with special needs children face many challenges, but Canadian Armed Forces families face particular and unique challenges as a result of the Canadian Armed Forces lifestyle.

It is extremely important for Military Family Services and special needs families to work together to mitigate challenges and promote the resources, funding prospects and community engagement opportunities.
