Navigating the System 

Navigating the System was first released in 2004. Since that time families have told us that this book has been the most helpful resource they have found. Now in its third edition, this valuable resource offers a wealth of information on how you can work with the systems that you will encounter as a parent of a child with an intellectual disability. Information on new programs is included along with up-to-date information on respite, early childhood intervention, education, medical care and many other systems.

Navigating the System – An Advocacy Handbook for Parents of Children with Intellectual Disabilities

School to Life Transition Handbook

The School to Life Transition Handbook was developed in response to concerns of parents and educators about the lack of options open to young people with intellectual disabilities leaving the educational system. It looks at best practices for transition planning in Saskatchewan and elsewhere. 

This handbook will help young people in transition and their families plan for their future. It is a useful guide for students and families as they move through school and into the adult world.
