We are an adult day program providing respite to caregivers by offering a safe and structured program, where young adults with special needs can come to socialize and interact with their community.
We take extra measures to ensure your children are safe while attending our program.
What We Do
We strive to provide a safe and inclusive environment for young adults including but not limited to those with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder), PDD (Pervasive Development Disorder), and other developmental or cognitive delays.
Our staff is looking forward to getting to know you and learning how we can help to facilitate your best and happiest day, every day that you join us.
Recognizing the vast array of challenges of adults with special cognitive and behavioural needs, we provide strategies for coping with higher need behaviours, including:
An individual behaviour plan
An individual safety plan
Visual schedules and cues
A sensory area
Interest and ability appropriate play that promotes communication and socialization.
As weather permits, we will spend time outside in the community. Walks through Sheppard's Bush, and visits to the park let us get some exercise and engage with others. Dancing in the rain is encouraged.
In the near future we hope to expand our community outings to include trips to the public library, the community center, and more!
Respite for Caregivers
There is no one who knows your child better than you.
Your young adult is transitioning from high school to something new, and we want to assist you with this transition. We will sit down with you and listen, while you teach us all about your special person and what tools we can use or tweaks we can implement to ensure that you're happy with the care they're getting while in our program.
We will work with you to create individual behavioural and safety plans. Your input and ongoing communication will be our best resource for success when working with your loved one.
(Our Promise to You)
Inclusivity and recognition of every individual's strength and range of abilities.
Compassionate and respectful care for your loved one, with strong regard for how they relate and integrate within the community.
An understanding that social interaction is a core element in individual happiness and self-worth.
Fostering teamwork and team play.
Safety, security, and understanding of the trust being placed in us by caregivers.
