Creative Supports Bulletins

While organizing the Focus on Microboards events in Guelph in November 2001, we came to realize that people and families living with other handicapping conditions besides Autism were interested in the information networking functions of OAARSN. So we created a new Listserv for everyone who is vulnerable because of any kind of disability, and for their families, friends and supporters. Numbers of interested people have grown through our hosting the conference about Creative Supports for Vulnerable Citizens in April 2005.

This is an electronic bulletin for adults who are vulnerable because of disability and for their families, friends and supporters who care about them. Through the bulletins, we can share dilemmas and difficulties, bright ideas and successes. There are announcements of events and special projects, discussions of issues, concerns about public policies, and links to useful books, websites and other resources. Our focus is mainly on Ontario, but we have wider contacts as well. People on the Listserv are sent an email note of the URL link to reach the latest bulletin.

The Creative Supports Bulletin and Listserv are linked to the OAARSN website (Ontario Adult Autism Research & Support Network) which is hosted at the University of Guelph. We welcome discussion of ideas and topics related to Creative Supports for vulnerable citizens. We support freedom of information and expression, and encourage everyone to try to see all sides of issues and to understand the viewpoints of others.

Please note that this service is for information and awareness. OAARSN and the University of Guelph cannot endorse or be held responsible for the validity of any information or the value of any service or resource that may be announced or mentioned in these bulletins. Nor do we necessarily agree with opinions that may be expressed.
