As part of the Special Services to Children and Their Families Program, Private Intervention builds on the program’s core goals in a flexible, individualized setting with Child and Youth Care Counsellor.
If your child or youth has a development or physical disability, and/or autism spectrum disorder, he or she may benefit from private support.
How Private Intervention Works:
Using a holistic approach in an individual setting, your child will increase his or her autonomy and emotional well-being. The program addresses goals such as:
- Life skills: Hygiene, safety, money handling, transportation, tying shoes
- Social skills: Friendships, boundaries, “stranger danger”, emotions
- Communication skills: Picture symbols, vocabulary, sign language, making choices, conversation skills
- Appropriate behaviour: In the home, school and community
- Community involvement: Activities in community centres, community events, shopping malls, theatres, parks and recreation programs, and more
About the Child and Youth Care Counsellors:
Similar to SSCF’s One-to-One service, the Private Intervention program is facilitated by fully trained and screened Child and Youth Care Counsellors who work for Options Community Services.
