Services and supports for people labelled with an intellectual disability

December 20, 2018

ARCH Disability Law Centre and the South Asian Legal Clinic of Ontario (SALCO) have partnered to develop this factsheet for settlement and frontline workers.  The factsheet discusses services and supports that may be available through Developmental Services Ontario (DSO).

Adults labelled with intellectual disabilities may be able to get some services and supports through the DSO. A person can apply for supports and services if they qualify under the Services and Supports to Promote the Social Inclusion of Persons with Developmental Disabilities Act.  

Front-line workers may be able to:

  • tell people about these services and supports
  • help people gather the documents they need to apply
  • tell people where to get more information if the DSO does not help them

ARCH is grateful to SALCO for their partnership and expertise.
