School Based Rehabilitation Services (SBRS)
What is SBRS?
School Based Rehabilitation Services [SBRS] include Occupational Therapy [OT], Physiotherapy [PT] and Speech Therapy [ST] for speech needs and is provided to school-aged children in their publicly-funded schools.
Who is eligible for SBRS?
Children attending publicly funded schools are eligible for OT and PT throughout their school career. Exception – please click HERE for OT. SBRS speech therapy can be initiated in SK and can continue until school exit.
What can I expect?
SBRS referrals must be initiated by schools and agreed upon by parents/guardians. Once a referral is received, your child will be placed on a waitlist. When your child’s name gets to the top of the list you will be contacted. OT and PT services are provided on a consultative basis; speech therapy is generally provided on a treatment basis.
