|The Community-Based Services for Children with Special
Needs (CBSCSN) Program works with parents/legal
guardians in providing the extra-ordinary care and support
required to meet the special developmental needs of their
severely disabled child.
CBSCSN is a voluntary program of social supports.
Parents must demonstrate that in addition to the other
community services they are presently accessing, their
child still has some extra-ordinary unmet needs. Parents
must be prepared to contribute financially, where possible,
to the services purchased. Parents who have private health
insurance are required to use these benefits first before
requesting assistance from the program.

ZAC is the first web browser developed specifically for children with
autism, and autism spectrum disorders such as Asperger syndrome,
pervasive developmental disorders (PDD), and PDD-NOS. We have
made this browser for the children - for their enjoyment, enrichment,
and freedom. Children touch it, use it, play it, interact with it, and
experience independence through ZAC.

|Provincial Recreation Access Fund Program
Could you or someone you know, use some support to get active in
your community? If so, check this out!
Recreation New Brunswick, in partnership with the Department of
Wellness, Culture and Sport, is excited to announce a new project
called the Provincial Recreation Access Fund Program. Our goal is to
increase active living opportunities for people with disabilities in New
Brunswick. We want to help reduce those financial barriers that limit
people from achieving a healthy lifestyle.
How? People with disabilities can apply for funding from The
Provincial Recreation Access Fund Program to help cover activity
related expenses. Want to join a gym, or aqua size class? We can
help with registration fees. Want to attend a summer camp or after
school program? We can pay for that as well! We'll even help you with
some of your equipment and transportation needs too! In fact, we can
cover expenses for just about anything, as long as the activity is
"ACTIVE", and not just a "one-time thing". All you need to do is fill out
an application form and submit it to Recreation New Brunswick. It's
For more information about this program, or to obtain an application
