Examine. Diagnose. Individualize.
Every child goes through a learning and life skills assessment to determine their current functional level. An individualized subject-specific program is developed to enable learners to acquire academic success and various life-enhancing abilities (e.g., social behaviour, self-help skills).
Setting the Bar
An assessment will help identify the strengths and weaknesses of an individual’s learning style. This will provide understanding for any academic struggles and allow them to achieve success.
This home-based program will build social skills using evidence-based Applied Behavioural Analysis (ABA) treatment. It will be designed to meet the needs of the child.
Raising the Bar
Students are placed into academic programs that best fit their ability level. Each program will be developed from the principles of Applied Behavioural Analysis (ABA) and will be closely monitored.
The Path to Success
Providing a supportive transition from youth into adulthood by developing their skills to boost independence and gain vocational skills.
