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:


(07/12/2022) - AN UPDATE TO OUR COMMUNITY REGARDING IN-PERSON COMMUNITY SUPPORTS

Kerry’s Place Autism Services continues to monitor the ongoing recommendations and guidance regarding COVID-19, provided by the Provincial Government and Public Health.  Kerry’s Place is aware of the increase in the numbers of Covid-19 cases across our communities, and therefore continues to maintain the same protocols regarding distancing, and the use of personal protective equipment during the delivery of our services and supports.  The safety of our employees, the families we support, and our communities remains our number one priority.

Kerry’s Place is offering numerous in-person services and supports, leading to an increased presence of staff members, and community members at our community offices and resource centers.  We continue to actively screen those we support, their families, and visitors upon entering our offices, and when meeting with families in the community.  Services currently being delivered and offered in person include:

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

We will inform our communities should any processes or protocols change.  We look forward to continuing to support families, and our communities.
