While there is no one known cause for autism, it is known the disorder is not caused by poor parenting.
Autism Intervention Program (AIP)
We are getting ready to begin another block of in-person skill acquisition sessions, increasing the number of clients in sessions from 8 to 12. The Parent Management Training (PMT) group continues to have high enrollment and we’ve added another group to our spring block to accommodate the registrations we’ve received.
We also welcomed Kathlyn Zales to the team as a full-time Behaviour Therapist! Kat comes to us with years of experience working with children in a daycare setting and has a background in psychology, having begun her Masters of Counselling in January 2021.
We continue to receive registrations for our group programming scheduled for summer and we’re delighted to be offering some small in-person groups for our clients so they can work on social and emotional regulation skills with their peers.
