Event description

Description

Presenters: Kate Bernardi, BAH and Certified Child Life Specialist and Kate Perry, Speech Language Pathologist.

Social ABCs is a caregiver-mediated intervention for toddlers with suspected or confirmed autism or related social-communication challenges. Developed by a team of Canadian researchers, including Holland Bloorview’s own, Dr. Jessica Brian, it is considered to be a Naturalistic Developmental Behavioural Intervention (NDBI). NDBI’s are evidence-based interventions recommended for toddlers with autism.

Eligibility Criteria:

· Families of toddlers between the ages of 12-36 months

·Toddlers who have been flagged by a pediatrician or general practicioner as experiencing social communication delays

We offer families two options to become involved in this program:

Option 1: Social ABCs Parent Group Coaching program (Six Week Program)

Cost: $2500

This option involves at total of 18 hours of direct intervention including one-to-one live practice and coaching at Holland Bloorview with didactic presentations being delivered in a small-group format.

Dates: This program will begin in the week of October 28th, 2019. The parent coaches will connect with families over the phone to set up mutually convenient times. Please note that all the sessions will take place at Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital.

Option 2: Social ABCs Individual Intervention Program (12 Week Program)

Cost: $5000

This option involves a trained Social ABC’s parent coach delivering individualized training in the child’s natural environment (e.g., home/park) and coaching families on ways to engage their children in these environments, within their daily routines and activities such as mealtime, bath time, as well as building social routines in play . This option includes 39 parent coaching hours.
