We believe that through education we can build awareness and inclusion. We believe knowledge and understanding will alleviate stigma and fear.

Our public education programs are geared to the general public and everyone is welcome to attend. Topics are selected so they be of interest to the general public as well as to those with disabilities, their family and friends.  Our topics and speakers are carefully selected to support all, open eyes and hearts to the challenges faced by so many in our community.

Play & Connect

Peer connections play group

Play isn’t just fun. Play helps us develop creativity, imagination, dexterity, problem solving, communication and physical, cognitive and emotional strength. Play helps players learn about themselves and the world around them. In group setting, it also plays a key role in social skill development.

We will play different games from board games to other activities to teach and promote as
many skills as possible. Focus will be made on social interaction and making friends during play.

accommodated.
