Autism Services – 6 to 12 years
The Autism Services Program for children age 6-12 years old focuses on the individualized needs of your child and can include social skills, life skills, community accessibility, and emotional regulation.
Once your child starts in our 6-12 Autism Program, they will be working with therapists who are on the Registry for Autism Services Providers (RASP) as required by the Autism Funding Unit and we will provide one of the following:
- 1:1 sessions per week with one Behaviour Interventionist
- weekly Group session run by Behaviour Interventionists
This also includes consultation from our Behaviour Analyst, Occupational Therapist and/or Speech Language Pathologist as determined by your child’s team.
When requested, a NONA staff person who is familiar with your child can attend a school Individualized Education Plan (IEP) meeting.
