Our program is research and evidence-based and can help with the communication and socialization skills of your child.
Through daily activities, our Early Intervention Provider (EIP) will coach you and offer strategies and support to help communicate and bond with your child.
Parent engagement creates the foundation which helps children flourish in their development.
Active Engagement means a child can interact, communicate and participate with others.
That’s when they are able to build peer relationships and learn from others.
Children diagnosed with autism often have a harder time becoming actively engaged. During our program, an Early Intervention Provider (EIP) will teach you strategies to help you keep your child engaged.
Active engagement can occur in everyday activities that you already spend time doing with your child.
We recognize that parents are the experts about their children. Our Early Intervention Providers work collaboratively with you, showing you how to meet your child’s unique needs, based on your priorities.
All the Caregiver-mediated Early Years programs coach the parents/caregivers. In our program, the Early Intervention Provider supports you to meet your child’s needs through individualized weekly sessions.
Weekly sessions are about one hour long. Caregivers are expected to spend 20 to 25 hours implementing what they learn throughout the week. This is done through your everyday activities with your child. The program length is six months.
Our weekly coaching sessions are offered in-home: virtually or hybrid (a mix of in-person and virtual).
Our program is offered in the language of your choice, English or French.
Our program takes place during your daily activities with your child.
Our ESI/SCERTS QuickStart™ Autism Navigator® program is offered to families whose child is between 12 to 36 months of age at the start of the program and has an Ontario Autism Program number.
