Learning to be independent

These three parts of the Learning to Be Independent service constitute the cornerstone of our support for people with intellectual disabilities:

Skill development workshops give participants an opportunity to develop and practice skills that they can then put to use in their daily lives.

Social participation workshops allow our members to maximize their involvement in the community. These get-togethers and the discoveries they offer reinforce our members’ ability to act, while helping them integrate and raising public awareness.

For more information about these workshops, or to register, please contact Amélie Guindon at or at 514-381-2300, ext. 28.

Out-of-town stays allow members to experience a different routine from usual, while developing the skills they need to function in a group. They give participants a chance to go on a vacation and have fun at places outside Montreal! These out-of-town stays also allow them to integrate with other groups present at the places visited. Lastly, they give caregivers much-needed respite.

For more information about out-of-town stays, or to register, please contact Félix Poulin at or at 514-381-2300, ext. 27.
