Making an impact in the lives of some of our most vulnerable individuals; allowing for socializing in a time when we need it most while practicing social distancing.
During this unprecedented situation, TIPES has been working around the clock to assist our families. We at TIPES understand that children with autism and other exceptionalities need:
- A steady routine
- Interaction with peers
- Contact with staff
By offering online sessions, it is our hope to:
- Help our children continue to make progress
- Assist families to enable their children to excel at home
- Support the development of adaptive behaviours in the home environment
We recognize that interruptions to these services will make it more difficult for our families during this time. We want to do what we can to prevent children from feeling the negative effects of time without therapy. Therefore, the TIPES team is designing an online program that will allow you access to virtual programming.
This program will allow families to obtain programming instruction, program supervision, parent coaching and consultations from home.
Our packages will allow access to:
One-on-one Direct Instruction tutoring programs
Ongoing interaction with peers and teachers through Virtual Classrooms
Online activities to do at home together
Individual counselling and support
Continued therapy for children working on the higher levels of ABLLS-R, AIM, PEAK or AFLS programming
**Children who typically engage in aggressive behaviours resulting in an inability to take part in group activities can now participate and feel like they are part of a group! **
TIPES hopes to continue to support our families and the community through access to learning activities at home, continued virtual contact with peers, instructors and teachers, and counselling support. We are hopeful that this program will mitigate regression by allowing our children to maintain a semblance of routine and connection during these restrictive times.
During this period of required isolation and social distancing, we will have community, providing connection and group activities to our children and their families. Furthermore, siblings and typical peers will be able to participate to encourage socialization, integration and role modelling.
In order to qualify for virtual educational services, learners need to be able to sit and attend online learning sessions for one hour at a time, not require physical prompting, and not engage in escape maintained behaviour.
For virtual counselling sessions, participants need to complete an initial intake interview to ensure the service is a proper fit.
