When you work with exceptional children, inevitably you hear, “You must be so patient.” Patience is good, but mostly what you need are good teaching skills. Good special education is not about tolerating children with disabilities, its about teaching them.
– Barbetta, 1991
Who We Are
We are a group of service providers in London, ON, Canada who provide unique, quality solutions for meaningful learning for children, youth, and adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities, their family, and supports.
Using the science of Applied Behaviour Analysis and other therapeutic techniques, the organization operates through a humanistic approach to ensure each person is learning to their fullest potential, how they want to learn, and with evidence-based techniques that are always overseen by certified clinicians.
What Makes Us Different?
Our programs are located throughout the community, and we work with you to find the settings that work best for you. We offer services in homes, at our centre, or in the community. We are committed to ensuring skills are always generalized and practiced in each person’s natural environment. Our therapists work in camps, recreation programs, daycares, schools, and everyday community outings like parks, grocery stores, and libraries. Whatever your goal may be, we can help you achieve it!
We are a service that works with each person’s unique needs. We have a large staff of trained support that can assist you working one-on-one, in groups, or in dyads or triads. We also work with families, agencies, and schools to provide consultation, parent training, and staff training. We provide innovative services not offered by others. We are unique in that our team has experience working across the lifespan from infancy to senior citizens. We can help you transition across the lifespan and no need to change service providers!
We are a large team of Board Certified Behaviour Analysts with varied areas of expertise with Autism, Down syndrome, Learning Disabilities, or Developmental Delays. Our work is based on the principles of Applied Behaviour Analysis, and includes proficiency and services based on peer-mediated social skills, social skills groups, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT). We are trained in various approaches to adapt our intervention for you, including VB-MAPP, ABBLS, AFLS, PEAK, PFA/IISCA, PRT, and more.
