Our Approach

Child and Family Focused

Our approach to programming starts with a question: “What does your family need to feel strong, healthy and supported?”  Based on your answers, our staff will work closely with you to identify and design a program that works to support your unique situation and goals for the future. Taking a holistic, family-focused approach, we build supports around your needs rather than building supports around your funding model, whether it’s private or provided by Family Support for Disabilities (FSCD).

With this customized blueprint in hand, we then build a meaningful service plan that is informed by reports provided by you, our team’s observations, standardized testing if it’s deemed relevant by our clinical consultant as well as our research-based practices in Applied Behavioural Analysis (ABA). The end result of this process will be a highly individualized plan built around your family and supported by the foundational pillars of social skills, behaviour, community and language your child needs for success.

Call our office to chat confidentially about your unique situation. We’ll listen, ask some questions and then get the process started for your family.

 

Comprehensive Supports and Covid-19

In addition to our individualized programming support options for learning in the context of a social environment, we also offer a wide range of comprehensive supports.

As we navigate the Alberta Health Services COVID-19 restrictions and recommendations in place at this time, we are limited in what we can offer our clients and families.

Ready for Summer 2021?

We have everything in place to meet our families’ needs with ABA-based Summer Social Skills Programs that are safe, flexible and fun for 2021. 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.
