Our Programs

School Based (5-12 years)

The school based program is designed to meet the needs of children, between the ages of 5 to 12 years, who have been diagnosed as having Autism Spectrum Disorder. Children attend the Centre in place of attending their home-school, or they attend the Centre part-time during the week with remainder of the week being spent in their home school. The goal for all children is to prepare them for an integrated classroom setting in their neighbourhood school.

The Centre is open Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. daily, September to June. We work closely in co-operation with the child’s home school, parents and other caregivers who wish to enroll their child in our program. Children must be registered with School District #73 or a private school which has a purchase of service agreement with Chris Rose Therapy Centre for Autism Society.
