TLC will provide you with high-quality Direct Therapy and ABA-based educational services.
Programs & Services
Therapeutic Learning Centre's Direct Therapy programs are intensive and individualized. Clients receive a set number of therapy hours per week to target individual goals that are identified through assessment and by the child's family and clinical team. Direct therapy is implemented by experienced Instructor Therapists, supervised by a Senior Therapist, and guided by a BCBA and OCT.
Often referred to as Intensive Behavioural Intervention (IBI), TLC's Direct Therapy utilizes teaching practices based on the principles of Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA), which employs the structured use of prompts, positive reinforcement, and data collection procedures, to teach skills and track progress. The structured use of ABA is an empirically proven intervention for intensive teaching programs. The overall goal of Direct Therapy is to increase functional learning and living skills, and to decrease challenging behaviours.
Therapeutic Learning Centre's Counselling services are individualized and provided by an MSW/RSW. All counselling services are developed collaboratively with the client and their family. Counselling services can be paid for through private insurance coverage.
Therapeutic Learning Centre's Consultation Services are offered to any parent or guardian in need of short-term behavioural services, such as toilet training programs, behaviour reduction programs, feeding programs, or any other behaviour modification needs, as well as support during school meetings, and in collaboration with other professionals. Consultation services are offered year round, and the implementation and schedule of these services are flexible to fit the needs of each individual case.
Parent Training & Parent Mediated Intervention
Therapeutic Learning Centre's Parent Training & Parent Mediated Intervention services are provided to parents to increase their knowledge and skills specific to their child's needs. Parent focused services can be provided in-centre or in-home, and are individualized to meet the needs of each family.
Hybrid Intervention Models
Therapeutic Learning Centre offers a variety of hybrid service models, combining different service elements to meet the individual needs of families. Combinations include Direct Therapy, Parent Training, Parent Mediated Intervention, and Consultation.
Therapeutic Learning Centre’s Tutoring program will be offered to all school aged children. This program provides 1:1 support to children with specific academic needs. TLC’s tutoring program can help students practice skills learned at school, maintain skills over the summer, or prepare students to enter school by teaching school readiness skills. Tutoring is offered Monday-Friday 8:30 am – 6:30 pm and on Saturday from 10:00 am – 4:00 pm.
Social Skills Groups
Therapeutic Learning Centre's ABA based Social Skills Play Groups will bring children with ASD and other developmental disabilities together in a social setting to teach communication, cooperation, and group play skills. Children involved in Social Skills Play Groups are assessed in a group setting to identify individual goals for each child. These groups are run by experienced therapists and educators, and have a 3:1 ratio of children to therapists.
Therapeutic Learning Centre provides some respite services to children with a diagnosis of ASD. Space is limited and preference is given to children who are already receiving other services at our organization.
