Our first meeting of the new season is on Wednesday, October 2nd at 6.30pm at our East side location –
Developmental Disabilities Association’s (DDA), Kaslo hub at 3455 Kaslo Street
We have found it very useful to have our first meeting of the year
focus on transition issues in general. If you are one of our new
families this might be needing information on Person with Disability
Benefit (PWD) or getting the Representation Agreement done etc.
However, if you have been transitioning for some time you may need
support in other areas such as Employment or Housing.
Terry Schenkel from DDA will be there too so come and say Hello, meet other families and discuss topics of interest for the upcoming season.
