Examples of skills that may be learned include specific ways of physically interacting with others (e.g. who gets a hug vs. who gets a high-five), applying social niceties with others (e.g. to whom should you share a secret?), how to identify and avoid bullies and being bullied, and how to use social media safely.

Early Intervention Information Session FREE OF CHARGE

A special information sessions for families of young children (36 months and under) who have questions about how to help their child who has a diagnosis of autism or is exhibiting some of the signs of autism. Whether you are awaiting an autism diagnostic assessment for your child or your child is newly diagnosed, we want to share information about evidence-based treatment options so you feel better equipped to make informed choices. We will highlight one type (or group) of  interventions called Naturalistic Developmental Behavioural Intervention (NDBI) that we have found to work particularly well for children 36 months and under.  NDBI is about parents’ active involvement in developing their children’s skills at an early age, specifically in the areas of communication and language. This approach focuses on coaching parents on ways to engage their children in their natural home environment, within their daily routines and activities such as mealtime, bath time and chores. Parents will learn about strategies for increasing their children’s active engagement and have the opportunity to ask questions about how to get started with helping their child at an early age.

These sessions will be hosted by clinicians who have specialized training and are certified to deliver a specific type of NDBI. 

Participants in this information session will be eligible to sign up for a series of free webinars about early intervention for young children with signs of, or a diagnosis of, autism.

This program is for: Families of young children (birth to 36 months) with signs, or a diagnosis, of autism. Children are welcome to attend, as we will have clinicians facilitating fun activities!
