Well done! 💗✌

I woke up this morning to the news that Chris Nikic has made the history books, for being the first person who happens to have Down Syndrome, to complete an IRONMAN

And just incase there’s any doubt about what he managed to achieve yesterday...

A 2.4 mile swim, 112 miles on the bike, finished off with a 26.2 mile run

When (my) Chris and I watched the footage of him crossing the finish line earlier today, we were both so emotional. What an absolute megastar 🙌🏻

And a gentle reminder to all of us, that we should never underestimate any of our kids because just like that, they go and prove the naysayers wrong 🤷🏻‍♀️ (No pressure Oz 😉🤪)

Here’s Chris in action...

Sensory Stories

Many people have kids with Sensory Processing Disorder and don't know there's a reason for their behaviors (and believe it or not, many adults have it and don't know... that was me a few years ago! 🤯)

So... here's a post explaining it a little bit.

***SPD is complicated and can look different in every person who has it. This is a quick list of possible ways it can manifest... but it's important to note that the left/right sides are not mutually exclusive. Many people exhibit a mix of behaviors from both sides.***

You can find some more SPD resources at nicolefilipponeauthor.com

We are excited to introduce Keisha Lewis, our Program Coordinator for Seize The Day Adult Program!

Keisha is a recreation therapist, graduate of Concordia University, Montreal. As someone who specializes in therapeutic recreation, she accepts the unique role of facilitating human freedom and enabling people to enjoy leisure in spite of apparent barriers and limitations. She values the impact that leisure and recreation can have on a person's life and their sense of well-being. Her goal is to provide people with the optimal experience and the opportunity to flourish.

Keisha has worked with a diverse group of clientele - youth, adults, and seniors. Her career took off in Dementia Care which has led her to planning and implementing this new and creative program with Destiny’s Way Support Services.

She envisions the Seize The Day Adult Program to be a place of comfort. Where people get to participate in activities that are enjoyable, freely entered into, and health promoting. It will offer a safe space for people to try new activities, hone into their skills, and grow through continued learning.

New Ottawa West Location!

Since we opened our doors in 2008, Destiny’s Way has brought to life the model of a home environment, while providing much needed programs and supports.

Our original site is nestled on 100 acres of farmland right in the heart of Merrickville ON. While this is an absolutely wonderful location for overnight respite and overnight camps, it was difficult to provide day programming. We were delighted to take that same model and apply it to Ottawa South West.

In 2013 a small room in a church was rented to provide after-school care.

Then in 2015, we became fortunate enough to utilize the basement of a Journey House home. While this is suitable for after-school programming, we have outgrown the space for adult day programs and camps.

After 12 years, we are delighted to share with you our new location! In keeping with precautionary physical distancing, our new location in Ottawa South West is ideal for adult day programming, camps, and overnight stays. We look forward to sharing with you new experiences and new programs in a new location!
