AUTISM SERVICES ANNOUNCEMENT

DON’T WAIT FOR THERAPY, WHILE WE WAIT FOR CHANGE.

On February 6, 2019 the Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services announced changes to the Ontario Autism Program.

Some families and professionals support the changes, many do not.

As the model continues to change, Step by Step Learning Group (SBSLG) will continue to provide the services that support growth in our children with ASD and their families. We believe all children have the right to reach their full potential.

Please go to the Ministry website for more information www.children.gov.on.ca.

 

MINISTRY OF EDUCATION ANNOUNCEMENT

DON’T WAIT FOR ASSESSMENT, YOUR CHILD’S EDUCATION IS WAITING.

Lisa Thompson has announced a number of changes to the province’s education system.

  • Class size
  • Math
  • STEM
  • Skilled trades
  • Health/sex-ed

Some families and professionals support the changes, many do not.

As the education system changes, SBSLG will continue to be committed to assist families in learning how their child learns and retains information.  Psycho-educational assessment is a process of testing that uses a variety of techniques and tools to form a hypothesis of learning, behavior and capabilities. A psycho-educational assessment identifies areas of strength and weakness in a student’s learning profile and provides a deeper understanding of their educational abilities. It can identify Learning Disabilities, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Intellectual Disabilities, reading (dyslexia), writing (Dysgraphia) and math (Dyscalculia) challenges that can interfere with learning.

Assessment often leads to the development of an Individual Education Plan (IEP) with the education system.  The IEP creates an opportunity for teachers, parents, school administrators, related services personnel, and students (when appropriate) to work together to improve educational results for children. The IEP is thought to be the cornerstone of quality education for each child with a learning difference.
