The following Foundational Family Services are provided by Child & Community Resources and our partners through the Northern Collaborative.
MULTI-DISCIPLINARY CLINIC WITH FOLLOW UP CAREGIVER TRAINING
Caregivers will work together with the Occupational Therapist, Speech-Language Pathologist and BCBA, to choose a goal. They will then have 9 sessions of 1:1 coaching and/or consultations with any of the professionals, based on what the needs and goal is.
Following a brief screening by the team, you will discuss strategies related to skill acquisition or a behaviour of concern that the family may find challenging. Caregivers will leave the initial consult with specific, measurable goals. The professionals will develop strategies and will then help coach the family or work with the child directly for the remaining sessions.
