Missing Links serves a wide range of students, confidently modifying and accommodating curriculum, learning environments, teaching strategies, and augmentative communication devices. We encourage development across domains of both academic curriculum and clinical assessment guidelines (VB-MAPP, ABLLS-R, CDMGs).
Our service model and philosophy stress the importance of individualized programming that meets the needs and celebrates the strength of each student we serve. In offering a comprehensive program that targets maladaptive behaviour, communication delays, social deficits, and provincial based education, we create an environment that truly facilitates well rounded development. The phenomenal growth and development we see in our students has been celebrated by parents, families, speech and language specialists, ABA professionals, clinical psychologists, and doctors alike.
Duties include daily instruction of students throughout programming with a focus on group-based activities. Instructors assist students to develop academic, communication, and adaptive skills, provide behaviour training and support, implement individualized education and intervention plans based on needs of students. The overall objectives are to facilitate their independence, collaborate with specialists to develop programs for clients' special needs, assess individuals in areas such as physical limitations, mobility skills, and cognitive, social / emotional barriers in learning.
