Family support

This family support service is divided into several parts:

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it is mandatory to make an appointment before coming to MAIH.

Assessment and referral service, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday to Saturday, tailored to the needs of families who have a loved one with an intellectual disability. Whether you’re concerned about a particular situation, or you have questions about your rights as parents, the services you are entitled to, or your loved one’s future, we can provide you with support and information regarding these questions and many others;

Discussion groups, information sessions and talks (informal and formal), designed for families of people living with intellectual disabilities and focused on a variety of themes, including sensitive topics such as planning for the future, sexuality, and emotional relationships. Often offered in collaboration with specialized facilitators;

Family outings, which give people with intellectual disabilities an opportunity to enjoy a relaxing, pleasant social activity with their families and other people in similar situations.

A companion directory available on request for our family members exclusively.

For more information about the family support service, or to register, please contact Liliana Tano at or at 514-381-2300, ext. 42.
