Prior to 1950, families with children diagnosed with disabilities had very few options. They could place a child in a provincial facility or maintain the child at home with virtually no support. It was the parents’ movement that began in Kirkland Lake in 1947 and quickly spread through almost every community in Ontario. Community Living London is dedicated to supporting people with developmental disabilities to live fulfilled lives in collaboration with families and the community.
