Referral Process

A physician or nurse practitioner referral is currently required for the services of the NEO Kids Children's Treatment Centre.

Please note: several of the programs to which NEO Kids CTC provides service and consultation (i.e., School Based Rehabilitation Services, Specialty clinics, etc.) may have alternate referral processes. Please refer to program or clinic information for details.
