Down syndrome is a naturally occurring chromosomal arrangement that has always existed and is universal across racial, gender, and socioeconomic lines. The effects from the extra genetic material vary from person to person, and the degree of resulting developmental delay also varies.

The most important thing to keep in mind is that each person with Down syndrome is an individualβ€”just like people who don’t have Down syndromeβ€”and should be treated as such!πŸ’™πŸ’›πŸ’šπŸ§‘

πŸ’™πŸ’›πŸ’™The Market Group Program Update: Looking for an opportunity for an adult with Down Syndrome to gain social skills, life skills and work skills, while in a safe and structured environment? We have just that the opportunity! Please join us on Thursdays for a full day of programming. The morning will be product focused with the creation of mugs, greeting cards, honey preparation, etc. The afternoons will consist of social and community engagement opportunities such as meal planning / preparation, games, group outings, etc. There are a number of skills embedded within the programming content to help support and further develop individuals skills, such a math literacy, transit training, life skills, social skills, and work skills. We are excited to now bring the Market Store on select Saturday’s. This will allow participants to come and have face-to-face contact with individuals who purchased a product, continuing to work on important social and life skills.
Both program days are staff supported. Spots are limited due to COVID-19 Government Restrictions, to 10 participants. Email [email protected] to register!

Dates: Thursday’s 9-3 PM, weekly; Saturday’s 9-12 PM (October 9th and 23rd; November 6th and 20th; December 18th) In December we may have opportunities to attend Christmas Craft markets in the community. Please stay tuned.

PALS Program Alert!!!! πŸ””πŸš¨
Open to ages 10 + years old. This is a wonderful way to assist our group with learning or development of social skills. This program provides an opportunity to practice their social skills and to be able to learn new ones, through hands on experiences. Programs may run out of the office or within the community, depending on activity planned. When able to, we also take the local bus to practice transportation skills, such as reading the bus schedule, understanding how to use the bus, while in a supported environment. Pick up and drop off will be located at the church unless otherwise specified. Cost of community activity if any. For community outing all participants are expected to meet provincial guidelines with respects to COVID-19 vaccinations. Participants will be expected to provide appropriate documentation for community outings. When location and public transit line up perfectly, participants will be taking the public transit bus to and from the location with drop off and pick up at the office (300 Sunset Blvd.).
