WELCOME TO KERRY’S PLACE COMMUNITY SERVICES AND SUPPORTS

At Kerry’s Place Autism Services, we provide social, recreational, educational, consultation and behavioural learning opportunities for children, youth and adults. Our primary objective is to enhance the quality of life of the persons we support, and to empower them and their families, through evidence-based and person-directed supports.

These services are offered across the following areas:


(04/20/2022) - AN UPDATE TO OUR COMMUNITY REGARDING IN-PERSON COMMUNITY SUPPORTS

Kerry’s Place Autism Services monitors the ongoing recommendations and guidance regarding COVID-19 delivered by the Provincial Government and Public Health, to ensure the safety of our employees, the families we support, and our community at large.  Kerry’s Place continues to increase the delivery of its in-person services and supports, resulting in an increased presence at our community offices and resource centers.  We continue to maintain safe distance, and wear personal protective equipment in our offices, and our communities, continuing to actively screen those we support, their families, and visitors upon entering our offices, and meeting with families in the community.  Kerry’s Place will provide updated communication should our policies or practices change as a result of new recommendations from the Province of Ontario and Public Health.  New in-person offerings will be promoted on our website and social media pages in the coming weeks including consultation sessions, respite supports, Summer camps, and intervention sessions at select offices and resource centers.  Services currently being delivered in person include:

  • select social and skill-building groups for children, youth and adults including summer camp
  • 1:1 respite supports for children and youth
  • 1:1 adult supports
  • 1:1 clinical interventions and mediator-based supports

We will notify our communities of any changes to our plans, consistent with Public Health directives.  We look forward to continuing to support families, and our communities.
