Breakthrough Autism Academy Aims to Help Children With Autism Reach Their Full Potential

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Aug. 1, 2012) - Parents of children with autism who are looking to enhance their child's development can now look forward to the opening of Breakthrough Autism Academy, a centre-based program for children with autism. The centre, opening September 2012, will be located at 519 Sixteenth Avenue in Richmond Hill (between Yonge and Bayview). The beautiful, free-standing space was created specifically for children with multiple rooms and a large outdoor play area.

"We feel that this extension of our home-based services will give families more options when it comes to quality services that help children with autism reach their full potential," says Nancy Marchese, Executive Director and Founder at Breakthrough Autism.

Breakthrough Autism Academy will be offering services based on Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) including Intensive Behavioural Intervention (IBI) and other Specialized Programs. Benefits of centre-based programming include:

  • Opportunities for both one-to-one and group-based programs
  • Opportunities to help prepare for transition to school
  • Opportunities for social skills development
  • Opportunities to learn from Direct Instruction curricula including: Language for Learning, Reading Mastery, and Connecting Math Concepts
  • Increased Clinical Supervision

In order to accommodate the individual needs of each family, Breakthrough Autism will continue to offer home-based services in addition to the new centre-based services. Parents who feel that their child would benefit from a centre-based program may contact to learn more about this service option.
