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:


(11/15/2022) - AN UPDATE TO OUR COMMUNITY REGARDING IN-PERSON COMMUNITY SUPPORTS

Kerry’s Place Autism Services continues to adhere to the recommendations and guidance provided by the Provincial Government and Public Health regarding COVID-19 practices.  We acknowledge the recent advisory by Public Health officials regarding the strongly recommended use of masking indoors, and as such, Kerry’s Place continues to implement protocols regarding physical distancing, and the use of personal protective equipment in the delivery of our services and supports.  We continue engaging in active screening of those we support, their families, and all visitors who enter our office spaces.  Kerry’s Place always prioritizes the safety of its employees, and the families we support.

Kerry’s Place continues to offer a wide array of in-person services and supports.  The services we are currently offering in person at include:

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

Should any of our processes change as a result of recommended guidance, we will promptly inform our communities.  We look forward to continuing to support families, and our communities.
