The St.Amant Autism Programs uses applied behaviour analysis (ABA) principles to teach children with the goal of improving socially important behaviours.
Several decades of research supports the effectiveness of ABA and it is currently considered best practice for autism spectrum disorder intervention.
Our goal is to make learning an enjoyable experience for children with autism and their families. We provide effective, individualized programming that encourages the child’s participation in their family and community life.
Our programs are funded by the Province of Manitoba to provide support to children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder.
We offer a 2-year Early Learning Program for pre-school children (or until the September of the year the child turns six years old, whichever comes first).
Children in the Early Learning Program participate in 20 hours a week of Early Intensive Behavioural Intervention, either in their childcare centre, or one of St.Amant’s autism classrooms.
Once children have completed the Early Learning Program, they are offered services on a consultative basis until they graduate from high school. Students can access the Consultative Service through their school by making a referral for a classroom and we are currently developing a referral process for families to make referrals for home support.
