At the next meeting on Wednesday May 2nd, we are very pleased to have Jia Li from the Services to Adults with Developmental Disabilities (STADD) team come and talk to us about her role as “navigator” for the Transition Process. STADD is a Ministry of Social Development and Poverty Reduction initiative which provides transition support to youth age 16 to 24 with developmental disabilities. It has been in operation for almost 5 years in a lot of communities in BC, and Jia started last year in Vancouver in October 2017. The “Transition Process” is ongoing for most of our young adults, so the subject content will be relevant for those over 24 as well.
We will also cover “After Graduation” with Terry Schenkel from Developmental Disabilibities (DDA) giving information on community inclusion, employment and social programs at DDA.
Come and learn something new, share ideas and meet other parents/caregivers. .

Hi everyone – Looking forward to seeing you at our next meeting on Wednesday December 6th at 6:30pm at our Eastside location – Developmental Disabilities Assn’s (DDA) Kaslo hub.
We are extremely lucky to be pairing with DDA (Developmental Disabilities Assn) in presenting this workshop. Their behavioural services coordinator, Ryan Bazylak, will be providing a behavioural science overview for families who are working through various behavioural challenges.
Please come prepared with situations about which you are willing to ask questions and share information in a non-recorded but public forum. Ryan will field questions and brief discussions with the intention of pointing you in the right direction to more effectively coordinate support for your loved ones.
