OACRS 2012 Conference a Great Family Experience
Date Posted December 05, 2012
On behalf of Christine, Trajan, and myself I would like to express our gratitude for inviting us to the Ontario Association of Children's Rehabilitation Services (OACRS) Conference. We met with wonderful representatives
of other Centres; North Bay with para-alpine skiing, enlightening us on programs in Muskoka;  Sarnia with their transition formula that empowers and utilizes  parent involvement to network, ensuring Ministry recognition and provincial funding and to participate within a network  of organizations that address the key areas for transition into adulthood. Those being income, transportation, household duties, relationships and activities. Great accommodations, words from our son "best hotel ever"  the Kids Zone arcade area, great location and the food had a lot to do with it.

We saw JMCC representatives from family services,  teachers, the executive and physio departments. Seeing the professionals from JMCC and their passion for and attendance at  information sessions made us feel awesome that our son was a JMCC client.  Dedication and genuine passion made us appreciate JMCC and its staff more than ever.

As parents we discovered what we are doing right and wrong and was able to see or sons future clearer.
We highly recommend attending the OACRS conference to all family clients of JMCC and with the knowledge that we gained, we would very much attend again.  It is a truly wonderful, if not essential, experience for parents.

Thank you very much OACRS and JMCC.
