Infant and Toddler Intervention
Parent Coaching Model
The earliest characteristics of autism can emerge between 6 and 12 months of age and yet diagnosis does not often occur until 4 years of age with intervention beginning after diagnosis.
Infant Intervention begins at the first sign of autism characteristics or developmental delay, in order to maximize the critical window of neuroplasticity in the brain occurring between 0-2 years of age.
Using a Parent Coaching Service Model, parents will learn the skills to embed learning opportunities into their daily routines, increase their child's expressive and receptive communication while building meaningful engagement.
Coaching sessions can be done virtually or in-person (for those in the Vancouver, BC area).
Picky Eaters and Selective Feeders
Early autism intervention yields substantial benefits that positively impact children, families, and communities. By accessing early intervention services, you provide your child with an opportunity for improved developmental outcomes.
Equally important, your family gains invaluable support from an early stage, enabling them to better meet the needs of their child throughout their lifetime.
There is a plethora of evidence to support the effectiveness of early intervention in laying the foundation for brighter futures, facilitating growth, progress, and overall well-being.
Consultation can be done virtually or in-person (for those in the Vancouver, BC area).
