You Ask - We Answer
Does our child need to be diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) to receive services?
There is a misconception that applied behaviour analysis (ABA) is synonymous with treatment for ASD. ABA can be used with any population for a variety of reasons. Did you know that eating healthier or exercising more is a form of behaviour change? Smoking cessation also falls into this category!
What is your pricing?
It depends on your needs.
We have set hourly rates, but we are willing to work with family budgets on an as-needed basis. If you would like more information on our rates or how we can personalize this for your family, please contact us using our contact form.
How many required hours a week are there?
As this is a service provided for you and your family, you ultimately make the decision as to how many hours you would like or can afford a week. We will determine how many hours to recommend for you or your family member based on assessments and needs. This is done on an individualized, case-by-case basis.
Will you work with our child’s service team (e.g. Speech Language Pathologists, Occupational Therapists, Teachers etc.)?
Wherever we can work together with your family and your other service providers, we are more than happy to share what we are working on with them, and complementing their work in therapy where we can within our scope of practice.

Where are sessions held?
It depends on your goals and preferences.
We currently offer in-home, and in-clinic therapy as well as sessions in the community. We are taking precautions due to COVID-19 to ensure everyone is safe and secure in order to continue in-person sessions.
We are also offering online services if it is deemed clinically appropriate.
How can I be sure you are offering quality services?
Upon being hired, our staff go through an extensive training process. Once the initial training has been completed, there is a minimum of once a month check-ins to ensure they are implementing programs ethically and with high treatment fidelity (this means if they’re doing things as we planned). All teams are supervised by a Board Certified Behaviour Analyst and we are responsible for following a specific code of ethics. If at any time you are unsure or concerned about the quality of our services, we welcome any feedback and encourage families to ask right away so we can address it immediately.
