In addition to our individualized services, we offer a wide range of group programs and supports in our Lethbridge program. These include:
Social skills training is central to a lot of what we do at Bridges. Using our network of community partnerships, we group children strategically with typically developing peer models. The goal is to help strengthen the ability to interpret social cues, understand other people’s intentions and process how and when to respond and interact with others in social situations.
Our staff will work with you to determine relevant and meaningful targets and build strategies to address improving your child’s ability to successfully participate at home and in the community. This can include everything from getting dressed and speech or language goals to grocery shopping to attending community activities such as Cub Scouts and swimming Lessons.
Consultations and Counselling
We work closely with registered Behaviourists, Psychologists, Speech-Language Therapists, Occupational Therapists and Physiotherapists. Depending on your needs, a consultation can be provided by one of these skilled clinicians.
For more information on these services, call our office for more details.
*Please note that current Alberta Health Care restrictions around COVID-19 may limit our ability to offer our full complement of services at this time.
HOW IT ALL BEGAN
“Almost ten years ago, I imagined a social skills program that would help my son develop the skill he needed to be successful. It is more than I could ever imagine that today we would be supporting more than 200 families, children and youth with a range of abilities to gain the skills they need to reach their potential.”
Lori Litke, Bridges Founder and Executive Director
Summer 2020 Programming
Summer 2020 is shaping up to be a unique time for our community and families. Bridges Consulting has everything in place to meet our families’ needs with summer programming that’s safe, flexible and fun. Expecting that we will need to adapt to what we have offered in the past, we’re preparing three options for families to choose from.
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.
