Special Needs Activities

The SNACS Program provides activities and support for children, teens and young adults with special needs, as well as for their caregivers. Safe and inclusive assisted activities encourage socialization and stimulation, while meeting some of the goals of the intervention plan (IEP) and providing respite for parents. The program is for English-speaking people who live on the north and south shores of the Quebec City area.
