iHealthOX Autism Therapy

Find a program that is geared towards your child’s specific needs

We use an evidence-based approach to therapy balanced with support resources for you and your child. By accessing our services, you will open a new world for your child that a traditional classroom simply cannot offer. We tailor programming to your child’s specific needs, and ensure they are set up for success.

What it means when someone has autism

Autism is a spectrum disorder (ASD), which can manifest itself in a multitude of ways and can affect the normal function of the gastrointestinal, immune, hepatic, endocrine, and nervous systems. It impacts normal brain development causing most individuals to experience communication problems, difficulty with typical social interactions and a tendency to repeat specific patterns of behaviour. Because autism affects people differently, we offer flexible programs to fit your child’s needs.

Our family-focused programming

We provide the highest quality programs possible through our constant collaboration with highly trained professionals who use data to validate our therapy programs and work together to adapt programs to the needs of each child.

As a team, we help you come up with personalized goals and ensure the entire family is secure and supported through our sibling and parent coaching.

Our Autism Therapy Services

We ensure every client is set up to succeed by modeling our services on evidence-based practices that are guided by clinical supervisors. Each of our services meets the requirements set by the Ministry of Child and Youth Services for the Ontario Autism Program (OAP).

iHealthOX Autism Therapy offers an all-inclusive service to provide seamless care to our clients, including in-house psychological assessments, ABA/IBI therapy, family counseling, respite care, social groups, and social integration.

Our Autism Therapy Services

ABA & IBI Therapy

Our behaviour services are tailored for children from 12 months to 18 years of age, and offered in-centre, in-community, and in-home –five days a week

Respite Care

We recognize how demanding it is to care for someone with special needs. That’s why our amazing team of respite care professionals are available to help you take a break. They have all received a full background check, have extensive training and are CPR and first aid certified. Our team is available by appointment 7 days a week (including evenings).

Social Integration

Entering a new situation can be quite terrifying, which is why our team of therapists are here to assist your child every step of the way. We offer integration into programs such as preschool, private school, daycare, camp, extra-curricular sports, and group activities. Programs are clearly outlined to meet the goals and principles of ABA and our therapists track your child’s progress and help them develop key skills they will use every day.

Social Groups

Many children who are on the spectrum will have a hard time making friends and integrating themselves into a social setting. Our therapists work with each child on their conversational skills, verbal communication, perspective taking, social normatives, and problem solving.

Parent Coaching

We believe that as a parent you have an essential role in helping guide your child’s development. Through our parent coaching, we use ABA techniques to help you implement behaviour programming in the home and community, and find an aligning support system.

Behavioural Assessments

We use evidence-based ABA principles in our behaviour consultation services to better understand what is impacting your child’s ability to function in daily life. We collaborate with the family to develop a behaviour plan that includes different techniques to reduce challenging behaviours, how to apply the plan to different environments–and we offer coaching to ensure consistent implementation of the plan.

Communication Services

Our qualified team of Communicative Disorder Assistants (CDA) are supervised by our speech pathologist and work together to enhance your child’s communication by offering services for:

  • Language delays/disorders
  • Articulation
  • Phonological disorders
  • Language learning disabilities
  • Auditory processing disorders

Our CDAs offer bilingual services in French and English and are trained to work with children with Autism Spectrum Disorder and other exceptionalities.

iHealthOX ABA & IBI Therapy

At iHealthOX we offer both ABA and IBI services that cater to all children on the spectrum.

Our IBI Therapy Services

We provide IBI to give children additional learning opportunities to meet and exceed developmental and academic milestones.

Understanding IBI

Intensive Behavioural Intervention (IBI) refers to the application of principles of ABA.

How it works

Clients in our IBI program receive a minimum of 25 hours per week of therapy on a 1:1 basis. This version of therapy also helps children catch up to their peers socially for a smooth transition once they start attending school.

Our ABA Therapy Services

We provide individual ABA therapy to help clients meet and exceed their goals in communication, social skills, academics, fine motor, gross motor skills, as well as self help and life skills.

Understanding ABA

Applied Behavioural Analysis (ABA) is a science-based approach that uses behavioural principles to modify socially significant behaviours. This is a process fueled by reinforcement and motivation.

How It Works

We use The Assessment of Basic Language and Skills-Revised (ABLLS-R), which is a widely used assessment tool developed by James Partington (PhD, BCBA-D). Once the assessment is complete, our team will work together to create a program that uniquely reflects your child’s needs and goals. Our team also uses the Verbal Behaviour Milestones Assessment and Placement Program as a tool for baseline measurement.
