We are pleased to invite you to the following Seminars for Special needs families

As we know, parents and caregivers for Special Needs families experience various challenges.  ICC has conducted focus group meetings to understand some of the needs.  We have organized seminars in the past to address important issues such as “Special Needs Trust” and “Financial Planning”.

We also understand other topics of interest for families with adult children having special needs:

– Securing housing for a family member — when the parents are advancing in age!

Social isolation for their adult children — when the phone never rings!

We are very pleased to invite you to join us and participate in the following seminars:

  1. Housing Challenges – Exploring Options

  2.   Social Isolation – Activities and Opportunities for Relationship Development with Leisure Activities

In addition, we would like to learn about YOUR needs and how ICC can serve the families through a couple of brief sessions:

–          A brainstorming session to seek your inputs for planning future activities.

–          Preview of a future topic — Needs and Preparation of   “Letter of Intent”.
