Services for Adults (Age 18+)

Respite
The Respite program is a recreational and play-based program where adults have exposure to social, recreational, leisure and theme based activities in a group environment both in the center and in the community. A large focus of our Respite program is community inclusion and integration. Participants will have the opportunity to go for locals walks and outings using the TTC with their group. We offer both partially funded and fee for service weekend respite.

Winter, March, and Summer Camps
During camp, participants will take part in traditional, exciting camp activities, and community events. Our camps provide adults with a recreational environment where fun and learning come together in a day of structured activities. Camp activities provide the participants with opportunities to meet their individualized gross motor, fine motor and sensory needs while encouraging communication, socialization and discovery.
