Autism & Complex Needs
Our Speech-Language Pathologists have a special interest working with children and adults with complex communication needs. We have advanced training to support people with Autism Spectrum Disorder, developmental delay, Down Syndrome and other genetic disorders.
We believe that all people have the ability to develop their strengths and learn strategies to promote their communication. We help people with complex needs throughout their lifespan. Our therapists provide assessment, consultation, training and therapy to serve young children, teenagers, and both young and older adults.
We believe that every individual and family is unique. We will carefully develop an evidenced-based therapy plan centred on your individual needs and goals. We understand the value of working collaboratively with parents, teachers, day-care educators, therapists and other community providers.
Our therapists are always focused on helping children and adults succeed and feel confident in everyday life. We will work to help you succeed at school or work, make friends and increase independence in daily and community activities.
Our advanced training includes PROMPT, Kaufman Speech Praxis Treatment Approach, PECS (Picture Exchange Communication System), Individual Authorizer with ADP (Assistive Devices Program), “DIR®/Floortime” technique, “Hanen More Than Words”, expertise with technology such as iPad Apps and other Alternative & Augmentative Communication approaches.
