We believe in using Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) to create fun and supportive learning environments for children and young adults with ASD and other exceptionalities. We take a child-centred approach when working with families and school staff because we believe every child deserves a chance to reach their full potential. Everyday, we see the potential for learning, and the possibilities are endless!
They say it takes a village to raise a child. We say it takes a team to teach one.
Each of our team members brings a set of unique skills and a passion for the work we do. Training and continued professional development play a key role in ensuring we are working together to develop creative, effective programming.
