What are Family Skill Development Services?
Family Skill Development is a service designed to work on goals that are personalized for your child with autism and delivered in your home and/or in the community to teach your child skills and help decrease challenging behaviours.
Families can learn to teach their child a skill such as how to brush their teeth, how to eat with a utensil, daily living skills, homework routines, and creating independent activity schedules.
Parents and caregivers can also learn how to decrease challenging behaviour and understand why the behaviour is occurring. You will also learn how to set up the home environment for success by using a daily schedule and task analysis. Parents will be able to consult with staff around topics such as toilet training, picky eating, and sleep routines.
