Have you completed one of the Making the Most Learning Series here at DFR? If so, you are welcome to join the study group happening once a month. This time will be spent delving more deeply into some of the topics covered in the series. If there is something you wanted to work through, an idea, an interest, an opportunity – this is the place to get some feedback and support to do so!
Give Laura a call or email if you’d like to know more, or to RSVP!

Thinking About Housing for a Loved One with a Disability?
Imagining Home is a group of like-minded people delving into finding and creating “home” for a loved one with a disability. This group has been meeting monthly for a number of years and is interested in discussing all things housing!
Interested in coming out? New members are welcome! Get in touch with Erin prior to a meeting so she can catch you up so you get the most out of the meetings.
The Bio-Medical Study Group is a group of family and community members who find it inspiring, helpful, and personally rewarding to talk with each other about our own experiences and share new information all about optimal health, balance and well-being. We think about wellness in terms of food and nutrition, making sure sensory needs are met, figuring out mindful and conscious approaches, or looking at what recent research can tell us about medications, seizures, digestive issues and more.
Our conversation focuses on the whole person and how people may respond with more or less sensitivity to their environment, including diet and nutrition, brain coherence, sensory integration issues, the calmness or agitation of those around them, and more.
The group has been meeting monthly for over a year and is open and welcomes new participants! We typically meet at The Gathering Place (20-850 King St. W, Oshawa), the second Friday of each month at 10am. Please RSVP your attendance to email@example.com so that we can plan a successful morning.
