School Readiness Programs
Our holistic approach to treatment for autism goes beyond conventional aba therapy. We draw from a variety of evidence based approaches to autism treatment including aba therapy, speech therapy and natural developmental behaviour intervention with results that are evident. Parents save valuable time and expense with no need to transport their child for daily or weekly therapy.
We focus on intervention within the child's natural environment rather than at a centre where children lack exposure to appropriate peer models. Treatment is provided 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 real world. Individualized aba therapy programs focus on a wide range of skills which may include the following:
language & communication skills
social & play skills
reading & writing
toileting & personal hygiene
Left untreated, Speech-Language delays and disorders can affect your child’s ability to interact with others and his/her quality of life. A communication difficulty can limit your child’s educational and career potential and affect the child every day of his or her life.
Our licensed speech-language pathologists offer assessment and therapy services for children in the comfort of your child's home or daycare. We treat a variety of common speech-language concerns including difficulties with: unclear speech, language delay, reading, listening, and social skills.
Many children who experience difficulties with attending and working independently at school are able to learn more readily with one to one instruction provided in a home schooling program.

For many children with ASD, social skills must first be taught and practiced within the therapy setting before they can expected to generalize these skills with other people at home and in the community. Contact our care co-ordinator for more information on how we support social skills development at home.
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.

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.
Speech Therapy Programs
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.
Programs We Offer
One to One ABA Therapy & OAP Clinical Supervision
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.
