Person-Directed Planning

Person-directed planning is time spent with an individual to listen to their future dreams and goals, which are documented together with direct supports and services to be provided by Community Living Toronto.

Person-directed plans are an opportunity for the people we support to express what is most important in their life. Plans explore dreams and aspirations and then identify the supports, services and resources needed to achieve them.

Plans are wholistic, person-centered and ongoing. They celebrate individual rights, diversity, relationships and inclusion. Every adult we support has a person-directed plan that is reviewed and updated annually.

Specialized Resource Homes are a group of supported living programs for both adults and children who have a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder and present with unique and complex needs.

This service uses a biopsychosocial approach within a behavior analytic framework with the aim to reduce challenging behaviors, increase daily living skills, and build capacity for community integration.

Access to this program is through a referral from one of our community partner agencies. Children are referred to us by Lumenus Community Services and adults are referred by Developmental Services Ontario. 

For more information about our specialized resource homes, please contact our Information and Membership line at 647-426-3220.

Community Supports
