We are one of Ottawa’s leading providers of support for adults with developmental disabilities. Our day programs will help advance skills and provide a fun relaxed atmosphere.
This program is on hold due to COVID 19.
Lifeskills programs are based on a traditional classroom model and give participants instruction on a wide variety of topics including socialization, anger management and cooking. This program often has presentations from special guests who speak about their lives, their jobs or their interests. Recent favourites included dentists, police officers and musicians.
Participants in this program have the opportunity to learn skills required for employment through our pre-vocational program. We currently work closely with Tim Horton’s, The Christmas Exchange, The Glebe Centre, OC Transpo, Meals on Wheels and Value Village to provide fulfilling job opportunities.
Participants who are looking for a more relaxed pace and atmosphere can participate in sensory activities, such as music, arts and crafts, cooking, games and chair exercises. This program has a quiet, low-demand environment.
