Think Tank Therapy has a variety of classes to match each child's individual needs. We have developed classes and instruction based on age, receptive language, expressive language, fine motor and gross motor skills. We accept children of all ages over 2 years old and all skill levels. Children do not need an autism spectrum disorder diagnosis to be a part of our programs, only the willingness to learn!
ACCEPTING WAITLIST INQUIRIES
Day classes take place Sunday to Friday from 9:30 am to 4:00 pm with extra supports available. Your child will be assessed individually and have individual goals created from a Board Certified Behavior Analysis based on the VB-MAPS/ABLLS-R/AFLS assessments. After assessments are conducted your child will be placed in a class with peers. Every child will benefit from a 1:2 (one staff per two children) ratio as support in the class.
All Children in our day classes will receive extra supports from Board Certified Behavior Analysis, Registered Behavior Technicians, DIRFloortime® Therapist, Speech and Language Pathologist, Occupational Therapist, Music Therapy and Animal Therapy. Upon registration of the student, parents will be invited to our Parent Support Group on Tuesday evenings at no extra charge. These supports, assessments and creation of goals are included in our hourly price.
One to one support will be made available if it is determined as necessary in the initial assessments.

Learn in the Comfort of Your Own Home • 8 week program
We will be using the STAR Autism Program online curriculum. It is a research-based program designed to provide preschool and elementary students access to remote learning opportunities during school and ABA/IBI centre closures for social/physical distancing. The Tots at Home Experience is the first of its kind in Canada!
We know that each learner is different and one size does not fit all. We use our Skill Profile Form to identify the online learning strand best suited to the student and identify the goals for the student in these particular remote learning session blocks.
Session blocks are 50 minutes per day via Zoom meetings, five days a week for eight weeks. Sessions are one to one with students and parents as needed support.
We will also provide you with Learn at Home packets that either you can print and make yourselves, or we can make it for you and drop off (no contact), when possible.
Our BCBA has made available one hour webinars on key ABA themes via Zoom each week, as part of the Tots at Home Experience.
Live Parent Coaching
To make your days filled with educational and fun learning with your child and family members, we can also offer live, synchronous parent and child coaching sessions for the following:
Routines at home for transitions, morning and bedtime; building social skills; family fun time; helping with household chores and home activities
Extension activities such as peer supports; fine motor skills; gross motor skills, listening and attending skills; primary games; cognitive skills
We will also provide you fun learning at home packets that either you can print and make yourselves, or we can make it for you and drop off (no contact), when possible.
