New Resource to Improve the Referral Process

Created by the System of Care Work Group of the Hamilton Best Start Network, the Pathway to Connect is a new resource that provides professionals with several options when connecting families and their children with a variety of universal and specialized services available in the Hamilton community prior to school entry.

Developed for professionals working with families and children aged 0-3.8 years, the purpose of the Pathway to Connect is to simplify service entry and ensure that families are instantly connected to the most appropriate service to meet their needs. The Pathway to Connect offers professionals with information on many services, including, speech/language, vision and hearing, and parental well-being and parenting.
