Making Contact, Making Connections, Making Community

Community Living is, of course, more than living in the community. In support of people with disabilities, effort has been made to facilitate connections and make opportunities for friendships. In doing so, we sometimes miss the obvious. This workshop will suggest a variety of differing connections that serve to make life celebratory. Using examples and stories, practical approaches that lead to an increased quality of life will be outlined.

People Supported Sessions

 ACE  Launch, ACE has been working hard on a new logo and tagline bringing them back to the basics of education and inclusion, they will discuss how this change is taking place and its effect on the group.  ACE will invite other groups to share their successes.

 Chrissy Johnson, As people continue to have different life experiences and inclusive lifestyles it will be important to hear what Chrissy has to say about healthy relationship and boundary setting.

Dawn Lee, Quality Assurance Manager at Community Living Campbellford/Brighton

The government wants to improve services and supports for adults who have intellectual disabilities and their families.  It wants services and supports to:

  • Be fair, so that everyone gets treated the same way
  • Be flexible, so that services and supports better meet people’s needs
  • Be here for the future

The new regulation (299/10) is part of the Services and Supports to Promote the Social Inclusion of Persons with Developmental Disabilities Act, 2008.  It talks about the rules that agencies and services must follow.  Quality assurance measures are rules that help agencies provide high quality services and supports and meet set standards.

In this session Dawn will discuss the standards and how they will impact people receiving services in Ontario.

 Staff Sessions

Cindie Evans, Coordinator with Developmental Services Ontario Toni Hill, Assessor/Navigator

will discuss the provincial intake process as well as the Application Package including the Supports Intensity Scale.

 Chrissy Johnson, Counsellor with Kawartha Sexual Health

will facilitate a session with staff about sexual assault, what it is and how do we support someone who has been assaulted.  Chrissy will discuss services offered, what happens after an assault is reported to the Police, how it impacts the victim and what we can do to support someone through the process.
