Therapy Bursaries

Speech, Music, Physio & Occupational Therapy Bursary Programs

WRDSS is pleased to offer financial support for speech, music, physio and occupational therapy to assist children in our membership.

In order to qualify:

  • you must have been a member of WRDSS for a minimum of one calendar year
  • your child with Down syndrome must be age 2 or older by September 1st of the current year
  • you must be willing to volunteer 10-15 hours to help WRDSS plan and execute our fundraising and social events over the next year

Bursaries may be awarded depending on the success of our fundraising efforts, the number of bursary applications we receive, your child’s access to these therapies through government services, employee benefits, and your family income.

The bursaries may be used between September and August each year. Any unused funds are returned to the program at that time.

When arranging to use bursary money please keep in mind that therapy must be provided by a registered therapist. If you need help finding a therapist please contact us for assistance at info@wrdss.ca.

Application deadline each year is August 1st for the bursary year running September to September each year.  Information will be reviewed by the Bursary Program Committee and will remain confidential.
