Community participation supports

We offer community participation supports based on the principles of Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA). The goal of ABA is to improve socially significant behaviors through interventions that are based upon principles of learning theory. There is evidence supporting the use of ABA to address a variety of presenting concerns, including Autism Spectrum Disorder, Intellectual Disabilities, learning disabilities, and behaviour challenges.

  • Self-help skills (ex: dressing, hygiene)
  • Social and leisure skills
  • Vocational skills (ex: interview preparation, resume development, job readiness, job coaching)
  • Life skills (ex: cooking, cleaning, financial management, computer literacy)
  • Community skills (ex: taking public transit, shopping, using the library or community centre)
  • Self-regulation and self-monitoring skills

Our community participation supports program is individually tailored to meet the needs of each individual we work with. We begin by identifying your goals, then complete an assessment to pinpoint your areas of strengths and need. Programming can be delivered in home or community based settings, depending on your goals. Passport funding offered through Developmental Serviced Ontario (DSO) can be used towards a variety of supports, including community participation and activities of daily living.

Psychological Assessments

Through our partnership with Dalton Associates, we offer a wide range of diagnostic and psychoeducational assessments. A comprehensive psychological assessment can be used to:

  • Give detailed information regarding your strengths and weaknesses;
  • Provide suggestions on how to build upon your strengths and interests;
  • Provide suggestions regarding how to address social, emotional, or behavioural concerns;
  • Provide suggestions on what learning strategies, accommodations, or modifications would be appropriate for you at your job or volunteer placement;
  • Identify areas of vocational interest that are consistent with your interests and strengths;
  • Provide documentation of a diagnosis for access to support services or benefits, as appropriate (ex: Developmental Services Ontario. Disability Tax Credit, Ontario Disability Support Program).

Some or all of the cost of a psychological assessment may be covered under your extended health care benefits.

Please contact us for more information or to make an appointment.
