Clients come from a variety of backgrounds, and include individuals who have severe Autism Spectrum Disorder with communication barriers and behavioural concerns. The staff serve individuals who: may require support to follow general safety rules at home and in the community may require some 1:1 assistance with daily living skills (i.e., toileting, bathing, tooth-brushing and dressing) Brock Road clients receive supervision in the community at a 3:1 staffing ratio and have support in developing a life plan and working towards the achievement of personal goals. Manse Road Manse Road is a residential placement program for transitional youth ages 17+ (male and female). Located in Scarborough, this program provides a family-like environment with private bedrooms for up to six individuals.
