The Work with Joe (WWJ) Program - Toronto

Our day programs provide opportunities for our clients to have a place to socialize with peers and engage in vocational, recreational and community activities that would help them explore and connect with their communities. Our program also sets out to preserve client dignity and improve their self esteem and general quality of life. The programs/activities that we run with the individuals we serve are driven by the uniqueness and individuality of each client. We emphasize and promote individual strengths so that when the clients engage in activities that they find easy and enjoy, there will be less opportunity for challenging behavior. The program seeks to teach /maintain life skills that may replace challenging behaviour, and to enable everyone taking part in the program, to have fun in all ways possible with dignity and respect to self and others.


WWJ is open to individuals who are living with the effects of a diagnosis of autism or a developmental disability and with a history of challenging behaviors. Admission is based on a formal assessment which builds on strengths as well as identifies areas/skills needing improvement. Groups may be formed for individuals with identical skills and needs. However, individuals requiring specific staffing ratio would have individualized programming that is based on their needs. Our staff work with every applicant to develop a plan that meets their needs for optimal growth, dignity, and success.
