In Person Services

Currently, ErinoakKids is only offering in person services on a one-to-one basis. In person groups are not currently available.

Safeguarding the health and safety of the families we serve, along with the health and safety of our staff, is our most important priority. Intensive cleaning and screening measures are in place throughout our sites, and all adults are required to wear masks. Group activities for children and youth are conducted in small learning pods to limit the number of people each individual has contact with.

To help prepare children and youth coming on site for autism services, we encourage families to watch our video explaining the new safety measures in place at our centres.

In Depth Service Planning Assessment* (up to age 18)
An interdisciplinary team will provide an in depth assessment of your child’s abilities across key skill areas, such as communication, social skills, imitation, visual performance, play, and daily living. Using a behavioural and developmental perspective, they will identify your child's specific areas of strength and provide recommendations on how to develop your child’s skills in the areas where help is most needed at this time. 
 
This package begins with a virtual appointment with a Psychometrist, who will conduct a semi-structured interview using the Vineland Adaptive Behaviour Scales-3 (VABS-3) assessment. In your second appointment, a trained clinician will conduct a behavioural assessment of your child in their natural environment. During this assessment, the clinician will lead your family through a variety of activities and daily routines in order to observe your child’s functional skills. Once these assessments are completed, a third appointment will be scheduled to share assessment information and recommendations. You will be provided with an assessment summary, which can be used to help plan an intervention program and provide a starting point from which you can track your child’s progress. You may find it helpful to share this assessment summary with your child’s school team and other service providers.

 
*This package is not a diagnostic or developmental assessment for Autism Spectrum Disorder.

Circles Around Me Group (ages 5 to 18)

The Virtual Circles Around Me Group helps children and youth who are struggling to interact appropriately with the people in their environment. Following the Circles program developed by Standfield in 1993, this effective curriculum teaches clients to sort people into different “circles” that extend out around their centre “Me” circle. The concepts of Touch, Talk, and Trust are applied to people in the different circles, so that your child learns that while a someone in the “family” circle can hug them closely, people in the “stranger” circle can wave at them. Circles clarifies social boundaries that can be confusing for children with special needs, as well as teach them the safest way to interact with everyone they meet!

Making Better Choices Group (ages 5 to 13)
This group helps children who are struggling to solve simple problems independently. Using the "Kelso’s Choice" curriculum, our trained clinicians will use songs, stories and practice situations to help develop your child’s understanding of the difference between minor problems and serious problems, and empower them to develop appropriate strategies to address their own problems.

Kelso the frog and his friends live at Willow Pond, where they encounter a range of everyday situations and use a framework of 9 of “Kelso’s Choices" to solve problems. The stories in the curriculum include everything from difficulty taking turns to dealing with bullying, and allow children to think about solving problems from an outside perspective. This removes the pressure from real life problem situations where it can be difficult for children to make good choices right in the moment. The practice of learning to choose one of “Kelso’s Choices” to help Kelso solve problems makes it easier for children to apply these same principles to solving their own small problems!

Some children may need a parent/caregiver with them while they participate in the group, to help provide support and encouragement. During the first session of the series, clinicians will interact and observe each child in order to assess each child’s initial skill level and identify goals to work towards. Separate groups will be held for children ages to 7, 8 to 10, and 11 to 13 years old.
