Respite support

Our respite service goals are to identify the barriers to participation that may exist for children, youth and adults with disabilities or mental illness. Services promote inclusion and accessibility.

1:1 Therapeutic Recreation

Our recreation therapists work 1:1 with children, youth and adults with disabilities in their home or community. These individuals typically face barriers to participation or struggle with social relationships, self-regulation or coping strategies and inclusive community participation. 1:1 services can be short or long term and goal directed. Each individuals needs, abilities, strengths and interests are our primary focus. Targeted goals are for positive mental health, emotional wellness the promotion of independence for every day life.

These supports can also be available specifically focused on personalized classroom and homework support. We’ll develop strategies for diverse learners that consider each students unique learning need and support.
