Where? at La Boîte Gourmande, 445 Laurier Avenue, H2J 1E5 (at the north exit of the Laurier metro station, just in front of the station).

Participants of our latest jasette between parents.
We want to remind you of the new service that Solidarité wishes to offer to members. The Twinning Program. We need families to build our bank and promote beautiful meetings that can support you in your role as a parent or facilitate friendships, between parents or between children.
Apart from our meetings between parents “les Jasettes”, you can communicate your wishes of pairing with another family. There is no commitment between our members, but beautiful encounters and connections can be born between people who want to create a network.
If you are interested, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org and choose your criteria for matching with another family according to what you are looking for through this process:
Is it your cultural background that would help you connect with someone and feel understood?
Is it the diagnosis that matters to you to discuss issues common to yours?
Is your child’s age a priority to share your children’s developmental milestones or encourage friendships between your children?
Is your address (place of residence) the criterion that would allow you to feel closer to another person with whom you could be matched?
The signatories call on the Government of Quebec to increase funding for the Family Assistance Program, taking into consideration the real cost of living and services, so that all families living with a person with a physical disability, on the autism spectrum and/or with an intellectual disability can obtain the respite services of their choice, which are necessary for them without delay in order to prevent exhaustion and to keep people in their families.
Did you know? Bill C-22, which creates the Canada Disability Benefit, was passed on June 20, 2023.
The purpose of this legislation is to provide additional financial assistance to persons with disabilities across Canada to help lift millions of Canadians out of poverty.
The passage of the bill is the result of exceptional mobilization across the country. The benefit is expected to come into effect in one year.

Define the concept of contingency plan and its use;
Identify the four phases of the IP implementation process;
Address the approach advocated in the “I have MY plan!” kit;

Communicate effectively with the school team
Share information tailored to your context and challenges
Identify priority actions for your child
Ensure a common understanding of the child’s needs for all services offered by the school
Maintain healthy and open communication so that information is easily shared throughout the school year
