Programs for individuals with development disabilities discussed

Do you have a child with developmental disabilities who will soon be an adult? Or is your family member already an adult and you want to learn more?

Do you support an individual with a developmental disability as a teacher, health practitioner, counsellor, service provider or in any other role?

From Oct. 30 to Nov. 27, the Ministry of Social Development is hosting community engagement workshops in 14 communities throughout the province to get feedback on the proposed integrated service delivery model.

The meeting in Kelowna will take place Tuesday, Oct. 30, 6 to 9 p.m., at the Prestige Inn, 1765 Abbott St.

Whether you’re an individual with developmental disabilities, a family member, advocate, service provider, health practitioner, educator, local government staff or an interested community member, your feedback is important to ensuring this workshop process to indicate if the ministry programs are heading in the right direction.

Benefits of participating:

•    Ability to provide input into the design of a new integrated service delivery system for people with developmental disabilities.

•    Opportunity to share knowledge and experience with others on the development of the service delivery model.

•    Opportunity to collaborate and engage in dialogue with others on improving services to adults with developmental disabilities.
