Developmental Services Ontario
Developmental Services Ontario helps adults with developmental disabilities connect to services and supports in their communities. To confirm if a person has a developmental disability, we will need to review a copy of a psychological assessment. We can help you, or someone you care for, to connect with available residential supports, caregiver respite, community participation supports (like recreation, volunteering, employment, or in-home supports), professional and specialized services, person-directed planning, and other supports to help people with developmental disabilities become more involved in their communities.
