Our curriculum-based group services are available to children and youth with a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder to further develop social communication skills, navigate social situations and utilize problem solving strategies in a variety of settings. We offer various group services in a variety of locations and times to suit your family schedule. All group services are organized by age, theme and skills of the participants.
Each group has an individualized curriculum that is based on the assessment of each child participating. Curricula are designed using the principles of Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) to help each child or youth practice, learn and maintain relevant skills and promote independence in social, recreational, and leisure settings.
We offer a comprehensive menu of group services in the following areas:
- school readiness
- social skill development
- communication strategies
- self-regulation strategies
- employment-related skills
- managing finances
- kitchen safety
- …and more
All group services include:
- group assessment to determine a service path and appropriate groups based on child and family goals
- individualized assessment and behaviour plan fun and engaging activities with peers
Parents and caregivers may have opportunities to observe their children during group sessions and progress updates will be provided throughout service.
