Family Support offers support to families who have a child with intellectual challenges (under 18 years of age) living at home. Family Support works within the community to help families connect to services needed; make informed decisions; and to increase awareness.

We offer:

Parent Groups

Person Directed Planning

The Family Support Case Manager assists the family & the child in setting goals that support the development of the child in all areas.

Transition Planning

The transition plan is a written plan that helps the young person prepare for adulthood and the transition from child-centered services to adult community supports in a coordinated manner. Please follow this link for the TAY Toolkit for families – Mainstream Services
