As a community, Waterloo Region has come together to create the following go-to initiatives:
Autism in High School
Autism in High School is a web-based guide to help students with Autism Spectrum Disorder and their families as they navigate the transitions and common challenges of high school.
Connectability is a website and virtual community dedicated to lifelong learning and support for people who have an intellectual disability.
Family Compass Waterloo Region
Family Compass Waterloo Region is a helpful resource for finding community-based services and supports for parents, youth and children in Waterloo Region. Visitors to Family Compass have three ‘doors’ to choose from when they visit the site:
Vulnerable Persons Registry
The Vulnerable Persons Registry promotes communication between vulnerable persons, the people who support them and the police. This information will assist officers when responding to an emergency involving the vulnerable individual. The registry provides quick access to critical information about a registered person, such as who to call in an emergency, a detailed physical description, and any particular sensitivities that the person may experience.
