We are dedicated to the betterment of children, youth and families. We address the needs of high-risk children to provide support for healthy development and learning. This may include Learning disabilities, Attention Deficits, Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder, Autism Spectrum Disorder and involves behaviours which result from these conditions. Our purpose is to provide community support for families under stress.This is a therapeutic environment for learning which addresses emotional and social needs equally with school skills. We implement principles from The Stress Model (Post) and the Collaborative Problem Solving approach (Greene). The goal is to stabilize, assess and program for the child’s individual needs and equip him/her to rejoin peers as quickly as possible. We never lose sight of the fact that children should be attending, achieving and enjoying a full school program within their own community but that they may need a time in an alternative therapeutic learning environment to fill in some crucial gaps and deficits in development and learning. We provide a fine balance of assessment of the underlying needs, identification of strengths followed by setting age-appropriate realistic expectations for the child to be successful at home and at school.
