Our program's mission was built on the belief that, through inclusion in publicly available preschool, and daycare, children with developmental disabilities can earn a full range of skills, and actively participate in home and community life.
GOALS OF THE PROGRAM
ASCD supports any children or youth from 0-18 years old with development delays, including speech and language delays, fine motor delays, gross motor delays, cognitive delays, and social, emotional and behavioural delays.
Our referral form can be obtained through the CSFS Vanderhoof office. Children with special needs living in Takla, Yekooche, Stellaquo, Saik'uz, Fraser Lake, Vanderhoof and Nahleh Whut'en are eligible for services. Any family or care providers who have a concern that a child has a developmental delay in any domain may refer children to the ASCD program. Referrals from professionals must have parental consent. Children do not need a diagnosis such as Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, autism spectrum disorder, fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD), deaf or hard of hearing, visually impaired, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), speech disorders such as apraxia, and complex health care needs, and are welcome to receive supports.
Funding for ASCD is provided by the Ministry of Children and Family Services, and all ASCD services are provided free of charge.
HOURS OF OPERATION
Monday to Friday from 8:30am - 4:30pm. Our services schedule is determined based on client need and availability, and may change on a week to week basis.
