Initial meeting and clinical observation
We offer an Initial introductory meeting (no fee) with a staff member to give an overview of services. A short behavioural observation (no fee) may be arranged after this initial meeting if needed. A Clinical Supervisor and the caregivers observe the child with a Therapist to help inform general clinical recommendations for service.
Family Support Sessions
We offer sessions with our autism specialists (Family Support Coordinators). Specialists provide consultation and coaching to families regarding approaches to learning in areas such as daily living skills including self-care; community skills, toileting, communication, and simple ABA based strategies to encourage adaptive behaviours. Specialists also may help families with accessing community services.
Caregiver Workshops and Support
We offer a variety of caregiver workshops on relevant topics such as sleep issues, eating challenges, Introduction to ABA, and more. Each workshop includes in home sessions in order to apply learning to the individual child or youth. We recommend the Introduction to ABA as a starting point for those families unfamiliar with the principles and their application — see more details about the Introduction to ABA workshop below.
Learning Together: An Introduction to ABA
This series of four, 3 hour sessions or two, 6 hour sessions introduces participants to Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) and practical positive strategies to help their children learn new behaviours and skills. We cover the basics of defining, selecting, and measuring behaviour using reinforcement, prompting and breaking tasks down into component steps. Participants engage in activities and exercises to develop their skills in order to support their child’s development. All families are encouraged to participate in this series.
In addition, families have the opportunity to purchase coaching sessions with the presenters in order to guide caregivers in applying their learning.
As a result of participating in this series of workshops, you will be able to:
1. Identify realistic learning goals for your child
