It is important for children to be able to thrive in their school environment as it is full of opportunities for children to learn, develop meaningful relationships, experience different environments and participate in programs that are beneficial to their well being. Yet not all children are able to thrive in this setting. Some children are not equipped with the skills and unable to meet the admission criteria. Others may be placed in school but disengaged from learning and their peers and teachers and demonstrate challenging often disruptive behaviors.  

The school intervention is divided into two streams:

School Readiness

School readiness intervention is provided for children who are preparing to attend school but are not fully equipped with the necessary skills. It is a comprehensive intervention that applies learning principles to prepare children to be able to thrive in the school environment. The intervention addresses challenges in attention, routines, transitions, language, seeking help, social skills and play.

School Shadow Support 

School shadow support is often sought out after the child is placed in school but demonstrates defiance, disengagement from learning, demonstrates disruptive behaviors or is unable to develop meaningful relationship with their peers.

This intervention occurs in the school environment and with close collaboration with their team. The shadow support’s key roles involve equipping the child with necessary skills, arranging reinforcement contingencies in the social and academic environment and meeting with school personnels to discuss transfer of responsibilities.   

Initial Consultation and Assessment

To better assess your child’s needs, prior to beginning intervention the therapist engages with the parents for initial consultation. For children in the school shadow support stream following initial consultation a communication line is formed to discuss with school personnels the child's behavioral history and outstanding concerns. Psychological and educational assessments are carefully reviewed to aid in case conceptualization.
