The Ron Joyce Children's Health Centre is a new experience for children, youth, adults and families that we serve.

Every floor is designed specifically with each program in mind.

Our care is patient and family-centred care, meaning the care is focused on the needs of the children, youth, adults and families that we serve.


Programs for Children and Youth

Autism Spectrum Disorder

Located on level 4, this bright open space includes classrooms, lockers and cubbies to help teach children life and school skills, with access to kitchen training areas. Group rooms provide programs for parent support workshops. Inviting and quiet reading nooks are located at various areas, in a secure space. This Program is the regional resource for south-Central Ontario.

Autism Spectrum Disorder, also called ASD, is a neurological disorder that affects the way the brain works. Children with autism have challenges with social skills, communication and behaviours.  The program provides assessment, treatment and consultation services to children ages 12 months to 18 years, as well as education and support for families and caregivers.
