Many children on the spectrum benefit from aba therapy to help with successful transitioning to school.  Our school readiness programs focus on developing vital skills including language comprehension, following directions, answering questions and task completion to help children function within the classroom.

 ABA intervention has been shown to be more effective when provided within the child's natural environment.  ABA Treatment at home, day care or school offers many advantages over centre based programs children lack exposure to appropriate peer models.  Our therapists provide treatment in collaboration with parents and educators, to foster the development of meaningful communication, social skills and life skills within the context of the child's natural environment. 

​​​Children who begin speaking late may continue to lag behind their peers in language and be at greater risk for academic and reading difficulties once they start school.  Challenges with reading are also fairly common among children with average language skills.  Difficulty with decoding and reading comprehension impacts on a child's ability understand the school curriculum as well as their performance on written tests and assignments.

School Readiness & Life Skills


Parents often assume their child on the spectrum will improve once they start school, have more exposure to other children and receive support from school educators.  While some improvement may be apparent, the public school system does not provide one to one education based on aba principles which have proven to be most effective in teaching children with autism.  The proper acquisition of school readiness skills requires step by step guidance and practice before a child may be ready to learn and function within the classroom at their true potential.  


My Child Speech & ABA Therapy offers school readiness programs to help children on the spectrum acquire the precursory skills required for learning and functioning in the classroom setting.  Half day and full day aba therapy programs are available at home or daycare to better prepare your child for transitioning to school.

Play & Social Skills


​​Many children on the Autism Spectrum struggle with joint attention, social skills and interactive play.  Quite often, they prefer watching t.v., playing on a tablet or solitary play over interactive play activities that involve sharing, turn taking, structured play, pretend play or role play.  Since much of their time is spent 'in their own world' and playing alone rather than interacting with others, they do not learn language, develop  socially or benefit from daycare or school in the same manner as typically developing children.  When social and play skills are impaired, the development of other skills such as language comprehension and expressive communication is hindered.

My Child Speech & ABA Therapy offers programs in greater Toronto that focus on teaching children the joy of social interaction, functional play and interactive play.  Particular emphasis is given to teaching the necessary turn taking, play language and step by step play routines that need to be in place before a child is ready to practice and generalize these skills with other children during play dates or at school.
