We provide a three to one ratio in a natural half-day preschool setting with therapeutic interventions incorporated throughout the day. Each child enrolled has a set of goals established to individualize the program to their needs. These goals address the five domains of development. Speech and Occupational Therapists provide consultative services to children enrolled in our early intervention classrooms.
Family Night Out
Family Night Out incorporates the entire family. We provide activities for children with autism, typically developing siblings and parents in a safe and encouraging environment that will allow families to interact with and support other families living with autism. Family Night Out is held throughout the Contra Costa community with such events as bowling, playing at a gymnastics studio, going to the movies, or at an outdoor picnic at We Care.
Our Individualized Education Program (IEP) Clinics provide parents of children with autism the skills and tools they need to navigate this important process. Every child with special needs has the right to an effective and customized IEP with their school district and it is crucial that parents are well informed of their rights and obligations so that their child receives the services he or she needs to thrive. During our clinics, parents are walked through real-life scenarios and coached on addressing their child’s specific needs.
