The program and services we offer have been developed to reflect the diverse and evolving needs of our consumers. Today, a broad range of highly successful services and resources are provided to assist persons with disabilities towards independent living and to help organizations in developing more inclusive environments.
With a focus on empowering the consumer to do their own advocacy, we help people build their own skills and determine their own approach to solve the problems they face. Through this approach, we help each consumer find their own voice.
Directed at providing services, supports, and education to businesses, employers, government, and service providers, this program aims to showcase the value of hiring people with disabilities as a viable labour source. Together, we can help your business become a more inclusive workplace while benefitting in other ways as well.
Our Independent Living Internship Program allows those with disabilities to not only access help within their own communities, it also provides an opportunity for them to provide the same services to others.
No amount of training can match the benefit of having personally experienced a similar issue, and we understand the importance of this type of support. That’s why we offer a number of groups that provide opportunities to share and learn with similar people. Even if we can’t offer the group you need, we will try to find one within your community.
In order to develop programs and services that benefit the whole community, we invest in research that acknowledges and respects people who have disabilities as experts. Through partnering with other organizations on a number of projects, we are able to develop what we offer based on sound research, which leads to better results for everyone.
Providing the tools and knowledge needed to access both the Internet and computers in general, our Technology Services are offered through our Adaptive Technology (AT) and Community Access programs, as well as our AT Internship.
