What are Social Work services?
Social workers are involved in providing counselling and support to clients and families. If you or any of your family members are having difficulty coping or would like to talk to someone about adjusting to your role of parenting your child with a disability, Social Work Services at TVCC may be able to help. Social Workers are trained in counseling and have experience in children’s rehabilitation. Counseling can be provided on an individual basis or in the context of educational groups for parents and other family members.
Social Work Services:
At any point in your child’s involvement with services at Thames Valley Children’s Centre, you can request a referral to social work services. You can discuss the referral process with one of your child’s treating therapists or by calling a Service Coordinator directly. If you are not involved with any current services at TVCC, external referrals can also be sent directly to the Clinical Information Services (CIS). A physician’s referral may be needed.
Social workers are registered with the College of Social Work and Social Service Workers (OCSWSSW). Services are provided in accordance with professional standards, guidelines and the ethical code of conduct. For more information about the College, contact at (416) 972-9882 (Toronto)/1-877-828-9380 (toll-free in Canada), or through their website at http://www.ocswssw.org.
