Who We Serve

We help adults with developmental disabilities and their families or caregivers to navigate the services that are available to them. Our goal is to help people with developmental disabilities to become more independent, to make their own choices and to get involved in their communities.

What's New

The Ontario government is improving developmental services and supports and making them easier to access.

This website is where you'll find updates about the changes we're making.

We Can Help

Developmental Services Ontario helps adults with developmental disabilities connect to services and supports in their communities. There are nine agencies across Ontario to serve you. Our organizations are funded by the Ontario Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services.

Wherever you live in Ontario, we can help you or someone you care for to connect with available

  • residential supports
  • caregiver respite
  • community participation supports (like recreation, volunteering, employment, or in-home supports)
  • professional and specialized services
  • person-directed planning
  • and other supports to help people with developmental disabilities become more involved in their communities!
