VERBAL BEHAVIOR/ FUNCTIONAL COMMUNICATION

 

At Tomorrow’s Voices, we understand the important role that communication plays for your child. A main focus for our program is Skinners analysis of Verbal Behaviour. We place a heavy emphasis on language acquisition by incorporating language into every aspect of your child’s day. We challenge each and every child to reach their maximum communication potential. Verbal Behaviour is the main method of instruction at Tomorrow’s Voices.

INCLUSION PROGRAMME

 

Tomorrow’s Voices offers a weekly reverse-inclusion program. Each student over the age of 4 will be a student of either the government or private school system. This program offers a chance for our students to interact with their typically developing peers in their own classroom. Each week our students are accompanied by their therapists to attend their school to participate in group and individual activities with their typical peers. This schedule will be determined through consultation with the parents, the schools, and the team at Tomorrow’s Voices.

BEHAVIOR MANAGEMENT

On an as-needed basis, each child is provided with an Individualized Behaviour Plan to meet his/her specific behavioural needs. Our treatment approach is based on the science of Applied Behaviour Analysis and only the most effective, and least restrictive treatment options will be chosen. The development and ongoing re-evaluation of your child’s Behaviour Plan will be based on the analysis and interpretation of collected data.

ACADEMICS

The staff at Tomorrow’s Voices will, as abilities dictate, teach skills in general academic areas. Sample areas include reading, writing and math. A variety of programs that have been successful in teaching academics to children with Autism will be used (eg. SRA - Reading Mastery, Language for Learning and other academic programs).

PLAY/SOCIAL SKILLS

Tomorrow’s Voices recognizes the social impact Autism has on our children and their ability to engage in appropriate social activities with their typical peers. We are dedicated to using a positive approach to teach our children how to manipulate and spontaneously engage in appropriate toy play, reciprocal social interactions, and engage in turn taking activities and group directed instruction.

TOILET TRAINING AND SELF-CARE

Our team is able to overcome many toileting concerns in a brief period of time. Although the results will vary from child to child, we are dedicated to challenging our students to be as independent as possible in this crucial area. We are determined to teaching children the self-care skills that will be most functional for them. Most of these skills are taught by initially breaking down the skill into several small components, and then each component is taught independently one after another until the student is able to complete the entire task.
