Parent Driven Services
SERVICES THAT ARE RIGHT FOR YOUR CHILD, YOUR FAMILY
At SOS Children’s Village BC, we recognize that parents are the experts when it comes to their children. That means we listen to you and we design treatment programs for your child that address his/her unique challenges, strengths, and goals.
Our Autism Manager and a Behaviour Consultant will start by meeting with you to explore the challenges your child/youth is facing and discuss the best means of achieving new goals.
ASSESSING YOUR CHILD
Some assessments are needed so we can establish your child’s current level of functioning. Existing assessments conducted within the past 18 months can be very helpful. We will gather any existing assessments that you have and utilize those as best as possible. We let you know ahead of time which assessments are absolutely needed and we do our utmost to keep services affordable for families.
We can also provide a full behavioural assessment. The choice is yours.
CHOOSE THE SERVICES YOU WANT
Just want Behavioural Consultation? No problem! Only need Neurofeedback Training? We can do that too. We’re committed to providing parent-driven services, and to allowing parents to choose the treatment programs that their child needs most.
Services are typically most effective when used in conjunction with each other, but it is not mandatory to have them all. We will make recommendations about what is the best fit for your child’s circumstances, but we recognize that parents must have the right to choose the services that suit their child’s strengths and challenges.
WE KEEP TREATMENT AFFORDABLE
We understand that the Autism Funds is a small amount of money for an entire year of service. We strive to keep services affordable by keeping management costs to a minimum. Our team is small and we focus on efficient communication between team members, so parents don’t have to tell their story over and over again to multiple staff members.
