    If your child is injured while at the center, staff will administer basic first aid. If medical attention is required, attempts will be made to reach the parents immediately. Staff will call Emergency Services if required.

    Exploration often requires being comfortable! Although we provide our students with T Shirts, we encourage parents to provide pants that are well fitting, durable, and comfortable.

    Children are encouraged to taste a variety of snacks provided by the center to keep children engaged in learning. Each child is required to bring a lunch from home that is adequate.

Parent Resources

Below are some helpful tips, resources, and information that can be downloaded for free. Regardless of whether or not your family enrolls in our Learning Center Program, we want you to have all the information we've been able to collect to help children on the autism spectrum. Our hope is that these materials will provide valuable insight into how ASD affects a child at different levels.

Understanding A Child's Behavior Functions

Recommendations for Parents

Positive and consistent techniques should be used to encourage children whose play actions are both appropriate and inappropriate. Each style of parenting varies. Our expert educators are here to support families and their children when faced with difficult disciplinary decisions.



  • Positive verbal and gestural reinforcement for appropriate behaviour, redirection of inappropriate behaviour

  • One verbal request (ensuring understanding) followed by gentle physical assistance

  • Teaching and practicing of preferred behaviours in order to help children habituate skills and learn self discipline

  • Offering children age appropriate choices and assisting them to follow through


Not Recommended

  • Corporal punishments (spanking, hitting, shaking, etc.)

  • Deliberate harsh or degrading measures that would humiliate a child or undermine a child's self respect (threatening, verbal abuse, yelling, etc.)

  • Deprivation of basic needs (food, clothing, shelter, bedding etc)

  • Confining in a locked room for an extended time.

  • Bargaining or trading to get child to answer request and instructions.
