Autism Services – Cooking for Tots & Caregivers
September 8 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
This group aims to teach children imitation skills through the use of simple cooking as well as stories and activities associated with the foods being made. Caregivers will be supported to learn how to prompt their child to be successful with instructions involving fine motor movements such as mixing, dumping and selecting items using fine motor movements. Please note that we are a peanut and tree nut free facility.
A Behaviour Plan will be created for each participant that will outline their learning goals for the group as well as a progress review to summarize outcomes. Content will be adjusted based on the age range of participants.

Children between the ages of 2-3 with an ASD diagnosis and their caregivers.
