Inspiring Possibilities since 1963
Community Living Kincardine & District has been inspiring possibilities since 1963 by offering a variety of services to support 150 infants, children and adults in our community living with developmental disabilities to live full and meaningful lives.
Lots of Socks 2023
Each year, our community comes together to celebrate inclusion and create awareness of the goals of World Down Syndrome Day with brightly coloured displays featuring socks and some wonderful portraits of people in our community with Down Syndrome.
Adding portraits of community members living with Down Syndrome to business displays throughout the community helps to normalize disability while shining a spotlight on the individual, their interests and hobbies.
Students Share Their Inclusive Practices
To bring awareness, and to celebrate Inclusive Education Month, CLKD ran a contest where students from the Municipality of Kincardine and Township of Huron-Kinloss could submit their inclusive practices for a chance to win a pizza party for their class.
From books about different abilities and inclusion, to building blocks and little detectives evaluating their school's environment, we received submissions showing us all the great inclusive practices here in our community schools!
Congratulations to Alanna Hageraats-Boucher's Grade 3 class at Huron Heights Public School who will be awarded a pizza party for their class! The students learned a lot about how we are more the same than different then redesigned areas of their school to be more accessible for all.
