Developmental/Behavioural Services

Services for children from six months to approximately 12 years of age. 

Overview
Pacekids is a qualified provider of the Developmental/Behavioural Aide Program funded through Family Support for Children with Disabilities (FSCD). Families must have a contract with FSCD to qualify for this service.

Purpose of Program
The program’s purpose is to assist parents in developing the skills necessary to achieve, support and maintain the child’s goal(s) through a consultative model. Pacekids will provide a professional support team to help the parents, directly in the home, to implement strategies, tools and techniques to support their children’s development. Pacekids offers three different options within the Developmental/Behavioural Aide Program.  Based on the needs of the family, programming options may involve an Aide, Therapist and/or Generalist.

Generalist & Child Development Assistant – Ideal for families who have a variety of goals that cross many areas and who would benefit from the support of a Child Development Assistant to help them learn the skills needed to implement them into daily living.  The Generalist consults with the family to develop goals and gives guidance on strategies;  the Child Development Assistant attends sessions in the family’s home.

Therapist (up to 2) & Child Development Assistant – Ideal for families who have specific and complex goals that span across one or two clinical areas and who would benefit from the support of the Child Development Assistant to help them learn the skills needed to implement strategies into daily living.  Therapist(s) consult with the family to develop goals and provide therapy-based strategies;  the Child Development Assistant attends sessions in the family’s home.

Therapist (up to 2) – Ideal for families who have specific and complex goals that span across one or two clinical areas and have the capacity and confidence to implement the recommended strategies on their own with the support of the Therapist(s).
