Welcome to Bridges
We help children build the tools they need to be engaged in their community in the most inclusive way possible and go the extra mile to support the people that love and care for them.
Summer Programming 2021
Bridges Consulting is happy to offer an ABA-based Summer Social Skills Program again this year to families in need of supports. This is in addition to our usual in-home and community programming. Summer 2021 will be designed to provide flexible and safe supports that meet the social distancing guidelines recommended by the province while also meeting the needs of the children we support.
The “tween” years are often the hardest for many children. This is especially true for our clients. It’s why we’ve expanded to offer a unique program that helps our clients in grades 6-8 develop the skills they need to better understand the hidden – and sometimes painful – social rules that are a big deal in school and with peers.
Bridges Consulting is a people company. We’re a multidisciplinary team that works collaboratively to meet the needs of every child we work with. Along with the members of our senior staff, we have a passionate group of Behaviour Coaches who are trained to provide the best support for all of our families.
Our approach puts children and family first in everything we do at Bridges, which means asking what’s needed rather than telling what’s best. We do this not because it’s easy, but because we know from experience it’s what brings about the most positive outcomes for the children that we work with.
To meet the growing needs of children and families across Southern Alberta, we offer dynamic, inclusive and unique programs for youth aged 5-18 offered. In each of our programs, our goal is to provide our clients with a place where they feel they belong and are celebrated for being who they are.
Who We Are
Bridges believes in a family-centred approach to helping children gain the skills they need to reach their potential. The focus is on building the children's success skills through meaningful, targeted supports.
We provide small group programming and individual consultation and support to families with children who have a range of developmental deficits.
Our primary focus is on building the foundations of social thinking, behaviour and language needed for success. Our approach is governed by research-based practices and Applied Behaviour Analysis.
