Aboriginal Supported Child Development Program
Our ASCD Consultant works with families and children aged 0 to 12 years old with unique needs. Our goal is to have a respectful and confidential working relationship with families and professionals to develop care plans appropriate for children. This could include speech therapy, gross motor development, etc. We are able to do in centre assessments when requested. Our ASCD Consultant will work one on one with children, group activities with children, speech support, home visits, toy lending, resource library, and incorporate Splatsin language and culture wherever possible. Our goal is to have parents involved and informed in the work we do on behalf of your child.
We have an in centre ASCD worker who provides speech and classroom support to children who require assistance with developmental, behavior, social, speech issues. In cooperation with parents and teachers, we develop ‘Care Plans' for each child who requires support in conjunction with the Speech Therapist, Child Behavior Specialists as needed.
We also have an ASCD/AIDP Program Consultant who oversees the ASCD program and works with families to support them.
