Caregiver-Mediated Early Years Services

Early Years Services teach families therapeutic strategies to support their young child’s development at home.

Families and caregivers will learn therapeutic strategies and techniques from professionals based on their child’s individual needs. The focus will be on building parents’ and caregivers’ capacity to support their child’s skill development in social interaction, play, communication, emotional development, adaptive development and self-help skills.

These services are caregiver-mediated programs supporting families with young children ages 12 to 48 months. All sessions are play-based, child-led and developmentally appropriate and will be available for a period of up to six months per child. Services will combine effective teaching methods based on the science of applied behaviour analysis (ABA).

The Toronto Autism Services Network has selected three evidence-based and adaptable programs with a successful track record addressing families’ unique and diverse needs.

  • Pivotal Response Treatment (PRT)

All services are delivered in-person or virtually through combined group workshops, individual coaching and consultation sessions.
