At Breakthrough we have extensive experience working with children with Autism Spectrum Disorder and their families – using the principles of Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) to develop the appropriate program for your child and family. After our initial evaluation, if it is determined that your child requires a more comprehensive and intensive program, we’ll work together with you and your family to create specific goals. We’ll then spend anywhere from 25 to 40 hours per week working with your child, as well as with you to reach these goals, tracking key milestones that we’ll celebrate along the way.
Our fully-customized, comprehensive program will help your child develop and expand their skills across a number of different areas. And we’ll do it in a fun and engaging way at our Centre in Richmond Hill to keep your child motivated throughout the learning process. We have various areas in the Centre, set up to specifically enhance our programming and help your child with social skills, communication and academics as well as adaptive learning skills, such as hygiene and grooming.
We do not believe in a static approach to treatment – rather ours is a flexible and responsive approach to your child’s needs. We closely monitor your child and through direct data collection make treatment decisions on a regular basis. And we report to you frequently on your child’s progress and encourage your active participation in your child’s treatment. To this end, we can provide parent and caregiver coaching – either online or in person – so that you’ll have the tools and confidence you need to focus on the goals that are most important for your family.
Nancy takes the time to track and take all the necessary data to get to know the issues at hand. Nancy always included me in all decision making and programming. She not only helped to transform my son but she played a major role in my training and as a parent that is the most powerful tool in helping your own child.Mother of 12 year old boy with Autism
