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.

Mission

SCS supports people with developmental disabilities and children with autism in finding available resources and planning for the future of their choice.

Vision

People we support belong and are empowered.
