Communication Through Play (adapted from Project ImPACT)
This program teaches caregivers behavioural strategies to increase social communication skills through play.   The ABA coach will work with the caregiver, through group and individualized coaching sessions, to identify and practice strategies to enhance their child’s priority goals.  Caregivers will learn strategies to build new skills at home during play and daily routines.  

Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS®)
This program supports caregivers in teaching their child functional communication using the Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS ®).   Caregivers will learn about the 6 phases of PECS ®, and receive individualized coaching from their ABA Coach to implement PECS ® with their child.  Topics covered include how to teach spontaneous requests, expanding language, responding to questions and commenting.
