We are very pleased to announce that for our first official gathering of the Families as Partners Support Group, we will have representatives from the DSO (Developmental Services Ontario) on hand to talk about their services.
When people with development disabilities turn 18, their children’s developmental services such as Special Services at Home, Assistance for Children with Severe Disabilities, and services through the Ontario Autism Program end. This means that they must apply through DSO to see if they are eligible to receive adult MCCSS funded supports available in your community.
When you connect with your area DSO they will help you:-understand and complete the application process.
-determine the kind of services and supports you need.
-get access to MCCSS funded services and supports that you need when a spot is available.
-find information in your community.
