Project ImPACT

Project ImPACT (Improving Parents as Communication Teachers) is a 12-session program that will help you and your child (ages 1-4 years) increase social communication, imitation and play skills throughout daily routines and activities.

Highly qualified clinicians will coach you as the expert on your child. Together, you and the clinician will develop priority goals and activities to support your child’s learning throughout the day.

Project ImPACT uses a combination of developmental and applied behaviour analysis (ABA) strategies to increase social communication skills in four main areas: social engagement, language, social imitation and play.

Schedule

Please note this program will be co-facilitated by Surrey Place and Geneva Centre for Autism.

The program consists of 12 sessions delivered twice per week over six weeks (a caregiver workshop and a one-on-one coaching session each week).
