Developmental Services Ontario staff will help a person with a developmental disability and/or their caregiver to complete an application form for developmental services and supports. During the first meeting, we will ask questions about how the person spends their time, their likes and dislikes, and their gifts and talents. This is part of the “Getting to Know You” section of the application form.
This part of the application will also help to identify ways the person with a developmental disability can get involved in their community. Achieving their personal dreams and goals may require supports and services funded by the Ministry of Community and Social Services, and it will be helpful for us to know how the supports you are requesting fit into the person’s life plan. For this reason, during this part of the interview, we will ask questions like the ones below.
