FUNdamentals was developed to provide participants with the necessary group and play skills required for participation in a group setting. Short activities are incorporated into each session that will create a foundation for your child to develop turn-taking, communication skills, the ability to focus, respond to instructions, and imitate sound and movement. Participants will engage in action songs, labelling activities, physical movement, cooperative play, and crafts, to prepare them for group settings.
Pre-Screening Session: Before registration for any group, the child or youth will participate in a group pre-screen. A group pre-screen is an opportunity for the child or youth to see what a group at Kerry’s Place Autism Services looks likes. Based on the staff members’ observations during the group pre-screen, and in consultation with the child or youth and their caregiver, our experienced staff will make recommendations for any service that might best meet the needs of the child or youth. Participating in a group pre-screen does not guarantee that the child/youth will be enrolled in a particular group or service. Pre-screening sessions are valid for 6 months. This group will require both a virtual and in-person pre-screen session.
Cancelled by Kerry’s Place: Kerry’s Place may cancel a program due to low enrollment or unforeseen circumstances. If this occurs, and the activity cannot be rescheduled, a full refund will be issued with no administrative fee charged.
Cancelled by Supported Person/Family: Cancellation must be received at least seven days before the start of the workshop/training. A full refund, minus a $25.00 administrative fee, will be applied when seven days’ notice is provided. If seven days’ notice is not provided, a full refund will only be issued if the vacancy can be filled. Refunds will not be issued for a missed day during a training session.
