What is Service Navigation?
Service Navigation works with families and professionals by supporting the referral process to access Grandview Kids services. Our team connects clients and families with programs and services at Grandview Kids, as well as resources in the community. Eligibility for services is identified based on an established set of criteria.
Who is eligible for Service Navigation?
Any family in the Durham Region looking for information about Grandview Kids’ services is interested in initiating a referral for therapeutic support, or is inquiring about eligibility criteria, is encouraged to call Service Navigation. Service Navigation offers a “No Closed Door” policy; our team will do our best to connect families with appropriate services to meet their child’s needs. See the referral process below for details.
If you are unsure where to start but have questions about your child’s development, you may benefit from the SmartStart Hub at Grandview Kids. This includes referrals to services not offered by Grandview Kids. Click here for more information about the SmartStart Hub at Grandview Kids.
What to expect
The Service Navigation team collects client information based on demographics, developmental milestones, and parent reports through telephone intake interviews. Service Navigators will discuss eligibility requirements and anticipated timelines and answer questions about Grandview Kids’ services based on the information shared concerning your child’s needs.
