About us

Service Coordination for People with Developmental Disabilities (SCS) is the initial contact for individuals who have a developmental disability or autism in the Ottawa region. We help people find the supports and services in the community that are needed to assist them in their daily lives. One of our important goals is to empower families/individuals to make informed choices about the supports they seek.


SCS helps individuals of all ages with developmental disabilities and their families, connect with community resources that meet their individual needs.


SCS is an innovative knowledge based organization, recognized as a leader by working in collaboration with our community to deliver high quality services to individuals with a developmental disability in our region.
