Connections supports families affected by intellectual disabilities in a number of ways.
One way we assist families where one or more parents have an intellectual disability is by providing in-home support to teach parenting skills, home management strategies, and improve quality of life.
We also provide counselling services to individuals with intellectual disabilities, their families, and their caregivers.
In addition, Connections runs a number of workshops for individuals impacted by intellectual disabilities that help to improve such things as parent-child bonding, peer support, and socializing.
Lastly, in collaboration with a number of other agencies, we provide a program called Sibshops which provides opportunities for brothers and sisters of children with special health and developmental needs to obtain peer support and education within a recreational context.
