Autism Outreach provides families with a play-based, child-led and flexible model of support for their preschool children with ASD. The program is based on DIR/Floortime, and also uses other strategies appropriate to each family’s needs. An autism specialist will complete an initial assessment and work with the family and a child development coordinator to identify goals and priorities for your child. The Autism specialist then provides training and consultation to families during regular visits, in cooperation with the child development coordinator.
The service is offered to preschool children diagnosed with ASD in Winnipeg and rural Manitoba. Once the child enters kindergarten they are no longer eligible for this service.
