Transition to School Program

A program that provides opportunity for every child to learn the necessary skills to be successful within the school environment.

The Transition to School Program (TTS) is a school-based day treatment program, which offers therapeutic and educational services for children who face barriers in their current environment or who require extra supports in order to successfully transition into a school program.

Our Transition to School Program helps develop your child’s school-readiness, social communication, daily independent living and self-esteem skills as well as management of impulsivity, self-regulation, self-awareness and the child’s emotions. The TTS clinic provides evidence-based practices of Applied Behaviour Analysis to deliver individualized programming and plans: Care, Behaviour Management, Treatment and Discharge.
