We work with individuals of all ages in Victoria, BC. We believe in an individualized approach to meet each learners’ needs to help meet personal goals. We believe in a “train the trainer” approach, which ensures parent involvement and transfer of skills to a variety of natural environments. We strive to empower caregivers through training and education to increase confidence and competence. We provide a variety of behaviour consultant services, assessments, interventions and strategies for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and other disabilities including the following diagnoses, behaviours and skills:
