A Welcome Change to Hamilton ON ODSP Services!

I’m not conceited enough to believe that my post HERE had anything to do with the changes at the Hamilton ON ODSP office, but it is good to know that enough people complained about the service thereby causing changes to be implemented.

As you can see from a recent leaflet, ODSP is striving to improve their service. Always a good sign. Readers, don’t sit back on your laurels, however, or the service will slip again. Keep ODSP on its toes by continually voicing your complaints whenever they arise. The leaflet suggests you speak to a member of the management team if you are dissatisfied with the service. You can also visit the following link to complete a survey.

For over twenty years, I have parented four grandchildren with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome: a disorder caused by prenatal exposure to alcohol. Please read of our family struggles and challenges at My two ebook memoirs available on Amazon titled: Two Decades Of Diapers, and, Fetal Alcohol Syndrome: The Teen Years, describe the struggles my grandchildren and I experienced during their youth and teenage years. I have also written fiction, including a six-book English seaside series, titled, Under the Shanklin sky. I am now embarking on a new adventure creating children's picture books, designed specifically with kids with FAS in mind. The two main characters of the book are Strawberry & Cracker, twins with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome. The first titled The School Day focuses on the special supports the twins need at school for a successful outcome. The book is due out in the fall of 2017, to be followed by more in the series, all focused on the daily challenges faced by children with FAS. For more info, see my author blog at
