    Life Skills for Autism

    Life Skills for Autism we provide services to children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder and developmental delays. Life Skills for Autism provides a comprehensive and safe family centered and person centered approach, to meeting the needs of children and youth living with a disability and their families. It is based on the concept of partnership with children, families and regulated by funding units to assist and empower people to participate meaningfully and inclusively lives in our community.Life Skills Services
    These are services delivered to enhance the unique strengths of participants, typically these services are once to twice per week for a 3.5 hour length in time. The Life skills worker will arrange a pick up/drop time that works for the family and will work around a comprehensive schedule. The environment of the services usually takes place out and into the community where we incorporate theory and practice side by side. The duration and length of services are determined by the family (the parents/caregiver) the case worker (MCFD/CLBC) and/or the supervisor of life skills program. The service is centered to empower families therefore families determine the length of services provided, how these are executed and have control over the service contract.
