Services 

Step by Step Centre offers a comprehensive program that promotes students’ cognitive, academic, social, communication and motor development.

During morning sessions, each student is assigned to a class that is suitable for his/her functioning level and follows a weekly schedule that incorporates all activities of the school day, such as circle time, academic activities, therapy sessions, personal care and social skills sessions in addition to special events, guest readers, performers, holiday celebrations, class trips and more. Our teachers and therapists communicate with parents (using Class Dojo) to provide a picture of daily program activities that children cannot report themselves. Parents’ input allows staff to talk with students about their home lives.

Extensive afternoon therapy sessions are also provided on a one-one-one basis after 1 pm until 6 pm daily. These sessions include assessment, advice, strategies, targets, and programmes of work to address the needs as appropriate for each individual child.

Students who need the continued support of occupational, behaviour and/or speech therapy might receive them over the course of the week during morning school setting or as one-on-one therapy sessions in the afternoons.

Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA)

ABA therapy is a comprehensive teaching tool that breaks down skills into simpler, more manageable tasks and is very effective technique in treating children with Autism Spectrum Disorders.

ABA treatment is especially useful in teaching behaviours to children with Autism who may otherwise not “pick up”   these behaviours on their own as other children would.

Using ABA-based interventions and proven behavioural strategies, we help children with behavioural and learning challenges and work on self-help, social, communication and academic skills.

We start with an extensive assessment of your child’s strengths and weaknesses using ABBLS -The Assessment of Basic Language and Learning Skills and a board certified behaviour analyst (BCBA) develops and supervises individualized interventions specifically tailored to the needs of your child.
