Autism Spectrum Disorder Behaviour Support
This program is offered using both one-on-one support and through group-based skills training.
During the one-on-one support program, a REACH Behaviour Therapist will work with the youth and family for up to 8 weeks. The goal of this program is to increase a parent's skills and abilities to respond to their child's behaviour. Families receive help to develop and implement behaviour strategies, coping strategies and self-help skills for their child. It is also an opportunity for youth to learn skills that will help them to participate more fully at home, school and in their community. The REACH behaviour therapist can also provide training for people working with the child such as respite workers, educational assistants in the school and community group leaders.
The group-based skills program offers a safe and supportive environment for youth to learn new skills and model developmentally appropriate behaviours. During these groups, youth meet with peers and learn to support each other. The groups also offer the opportunity to practice important skills like sharing, attending, and communicating with one another.
