Transition from youth to adult developmental services

Change can be exciting and challenging for lots of people. The transition from high school life to life as an adult can be particularly so. It is a time for you as the person leaving high school and your family to make important decisions about the future. These decisions include making choices about education, employment, volunteering, relationships, community participation and social involvement.

Person-directed planning is an interactive, dynamic, person-focused, ongoing process that helps bring clarity to the decision-making process. It enables the identification of opportunities and experiences that are available in your community. It will help you to prepare, plan, set goals and take action to assist with a successful transition into life as an adult. Understanding and undertaking the steps involved in person-directed planning is often the fist step required to building a good life in the community.

Housing Tool Kit Survey

Over the last few years, more and more people and their families/support networks have become actively engaged in planning for their future. This movement has been partially spurred by recent  community-based projects that provided replicable examples of creative, inclusive and cost-effective housing solutions for adults with developmental disabilities.

The Housing Coordinator of Developmental Services Ontario is creating a Housing Tool Kit In order to assist people, their families and their support networks in their planning. We estimate the survey to take you under 5 minutes to complete. Please take a few minutes to provide us with feedback in order to develop a  Tool Kit  that can support your planning.
