How was your Summer?
We have had a busy summer. We ran Kidlympics, spent the summer continuing our regular therapy, and been brainstorming and investigating new curriculums for workshops.
There is a potential move in the works for us (we will let you know), and we are also enjoying the summer as well. Witnessing a child who did not talk last year to full sentences this year, is the kind of thing we see, and enjoy seeing. We have been very excited to build up our services and staff in the area, so we look forward to the fall and getting to work.
We are proactively looking at how to serve waiting families that are on the list for diagnosis, but have no service support available. We have come up with a pilot service, so if you are interested, give us a call and ask about it. And, once again, it is a privilege to serve our families. We all make a difference.
Update We have postponed our plan for the Drama Camp to a later date. We still intend to put one on. August 2019
We have arranged to host a week long day camp program in Lillooet, BC. This camp will use drama skills to learn and demonstrate social skills, with successful use of these skills in the safety of the camp. We will end the day with swimming at the Rec Centre pool.
The day camp program is open to ALL children 9 to 12, and will be run at the Lillooet Recreation Centre. The day will start at 9 till 4 pm. We will have a place to store lunches and snacks including drinks.
Early Bird is rate is on now. $50 deposit to hold your seat; payment due at the start of camp.
Late Registrations will be accepted as space allows.
File can be downloaded here.
We have organized a Family Fun Fundraiser for New Heights....Bowling.
We price includes two games and shoes.
And all you have to do is call the office at 250 376 0375 to prepay or email us to arrange pre payment. We can accept cash for this. We don't have the ability to accept electronic prepayment.
If you want to attend, call us and we will put you on a list for payment at the Bowling Alley that day. We do want to be able to give them numbers for how many to expect.
Looking forward to having some fun. Please freely share this flyer with Family and Friend who may be interested.
Here is the information we have been waiting for the details. If you looked at our Facebook page or received an email, and want to read our flyers clearly, here are the flyers.
Basically our options are Kidlympics, MindfulMe, and Escape the Mystery in Kamloops, and Kids Drama Camp in Lillooet.
They are designed to be one day a week over several weeks. You can register for some or all of the sessions, or sign up for a specific week, taking on different sessions.
For some kids, a full week of a day camp program is overwhelming. The consistency of the same children over a few, weeks will give children time to connect with others for friendship building. Positive peer relationships is one of the goals of these programs. You have the option of signing up your child for all of them. Each theme focuses on specific goals and skills to enable children to have a safe place to learn, have fun, and practise with facilitators trained to help children with autism and other special needs, and the other goal is real inclusivity and understanding with all the participants.
For other families, they want their kids to have fun and learn a few things and still have time for other family plans. We also serve a broad area in the Interior and families often commute to Kamloops to do shopping, medical and other appointments. This one day a week themes program was planned with this in mind.
Our summer program options are OPEN to all children, and we have Behaviour Interventionists available and facilitating these programs. This allows those children with ASD, or any other Special Needs, such as FASD or ADHD, could attend, where that child would usually require some kind of extra adult support. Discuss with us what your child would require for support.
Autism Funding Unit funds can be used in full or part to pay for the programs.
Other funding options may be used, including private payments. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 250 376 0375 to discuss with us your situation.
A $50 deposit is required to hold and register the spot for your child, pending full payment by Autism Funding Unit, or other support funds, such as Adoption Assistance funding or another arrangement through an MCFD social worker, or other funding source, depending on the funding program criteria. Other funding resources, including private payment arrangement, can be negotiated. Payment is due at the start of the program unless otherwise funded, such as AFU funding. Contact us to discuss your needs confidentially. Registration forms will be sent to you by request with an email address.

These programs will be offered through our office in Kamloops but are open to any child of the Interior.
