SERVICES

  1. WeCare Early Intervention Program for Toddlers 
  • Our WeCare Early Intervention Program offers an intensive 15 hour per week curriculum Monday through Friday all year round. The program is developmentally appropriate for young children ages 2-6 with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Every aspect of our program, from the deliberate architecture to the comprehensive curriculum, is custom-designed to support and nurture students. Therapy takes place in a play-filled environment with a high staff-to-child ratio.  Speech-language therapy is incorporated into weekly programming.
  • Teaching Methodologies: Our curriculum for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is based on evidence-based models such as the Early Start Denver Model (ESDM) and More Than Words ® . This model aims to improve development in young children with ASD by utilizing the knowledge of how the typical child develops. We use relationship-based, behavioral, and developmental methodologies to create an individualized curriculum for each child
  1. Shadow School Support
  • Our School Shadow Support intervention aims to help your child assimilate into the school environment while achieving both academic and social independence. 
  • Shadowing helps to make the school a friendlier place for your child. Shadowing the child at school can help him or her develop appropriate behaviours in school, strengthen academic ability, and build up social interaction skills amongst peers.
  • We believe that special needs children can benefit from having an inclusive mainstream education to aid in their development and growth. To maximize the benefits of inclusive mainstream education, the child must receive the support and services that he or she needs.
  • We provide shadow support to preschools in the District 2 metro area.

WECARE SOLUTIONS

We help toddlers and preschoolers improve their speech skills, social and emotional well-being, as well as their self-care and sensory skills. As their confidence and abilities grow, children are guided in how to overcome repetitive behaviors and aversions to textures, colors, or shapes. They are also shown how to care for themselves and introduced to coping skills, including communicating through technology. All this requires extra levels of attention and supervision to ensure that all children’s individual needs are met. Treatment plans may be modeled on the following issues and include some of the following objectives:

Communication objectives may include:

  • Developing conversational skills for interacting with peers and adults
  • Using and understanding nonverbal communication such as gestures
  • Interpreting facial expressions
  • Becoming comfortable engaging in functional, spontaneous dialogue

Common social objectives may include:

  • Forming friendships with other classmates
  • Learning to initiate and sustain back-and-forth conversations
  • Enjoying both structured and unstructured playtime
  • Empathy in interactions with others

Behavioral Objectives may include:

  • Respecting boundaries and personal space
  • Increase positive behaviors
  • Expressing frustration in a productive way
  • Making eye contact during interactions with peers and adults

Self-Care objectives for young children may include:

  • Self-feeding
  • Brushing teeth
  • Taking a shower
  • Dressing and undressing
  • Toileting
