Programs for Youth Funding options

ABA and IBI
With flexible and affordable IBI and ABA programs, we attempt to re-mediate or correct skill gaps and deficits identified during assessment and reduce challenging behaviours.
Adapted After School Program (Respite Services)
Based on personalized education plan students work on speech, social skills, life skills, and academic subjects with specialized 1-on-1 or 1-on-2 instructions.
Adapted Yoga Classes
Program for teens and adults with special needs to improve their cognitive, coordination and gross motor skills through multiple levels of exploration.
Arts and Crafts
This is a 1 hour program where children experience 1-on-1 art classes such as crafts, painting, drawings, etc. Through each lesson, children strengthen both confidence and their creative art skills.
Happy cook program
This is a program for youth (12+) that teaches them basic cooking skills. They learn how to prepare foods such as sandwiches and salads. While having fun, they also get to improve their social and communication skills.
We offer 1-on-1 piano lessons with our experienced music teacher with a background in psychology. Classes take place on Saturdays from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm.
Students learn how to interact with people at their own age, and then build confidence and friendship inside and outside the group. This program targets their socio-emotional development.
We offer 1-on-1 tutoring. It is a systematic, but adapted instructional tutoring. We focus on Reading and Language Arts, Writing and Composition, and it is proven to be an extremely effective approach.
Trips, Events and Parties
Playing is an important skill for individuals with special needs. They are entitled to enjoy life with other normal developed individuals. We host events such as zoo trips, Halloween parties, fishing events, and much more!
