Family Support for Children with Disabilities (FSCD)



Parents of children with disabilities sometimes need support so they can raise their children at home and fully participate in community life.

The Family Support for Children with Disabilities (FSCD) Program provides a wide range of family-centred supports and services. Services are meant to help strengthen families’ ability to promote their child’s healthy development and encourage their child’s participation in activities at home and in the community.
