A major component of our service delivery model is to provide education about the Power, the Pride and the Potential of those with "Different Abilities" through participation in community activities, such as demonstrations (Canadian National Exhibition, Camp Dawn and Erin Oaks TIP program) and conferences, e.g. Provincial ABI Inter Urban conference.

Programs are available for both children and adults and are taught by certified Black Belt instructors with experience in supporting special need populations. Please note, in an effort to address communication challenges, all programs are/can be taught in ASL (American Sign Language).
