Living With Others

This is a unique curriculum developed by Ongwanada staff to teach small classes of individuals with developmental disabilities about relationships, sexuality, emotions, and social skills. Students can progress through three levels: Understanding Myself and Others (basic), Responsible Sexuality and Personal Safety (intermediate), and Decision-Making, Safety and Relationships in Society (advanced). Parents and caregivers are closely involved. This is an educational program and does not provide counselling or treatment for problematic sexual behaviours.

Eligibility: Open to adolescents and adults with developmental disabilities. Area served: Frontenac, Lennox & Addington Counties.

Waiting period: Variable. Classes of students are established according to compatible learning abilities and living situations.

Fees: A co-payment fee is charged.

For more information about this program, please contact Ongwanada's Social Work Department at 613-548-4417 ext. 3311.
