Why Choose the Bridges

 The Bridges Program, offers children the opportunity participate
with typical peers, in order to facilitate generalization of the skills

the environment and context where they are used.

Special Activities
The daily schedule includes a series activities built around a weekly
theme that also promote skills in such target areas such as conversation, non verbal communication, perspective taking. Through organized games and recreational activities, arts and crafts activities, role
playing, lunch, snack, supervised play activities we are able to promote
increased social skill practice. Children will earn tokens as reinforcment for successful interactions and making good choices and will be
able to exchange tokens for prizes at the reward store.
This year, for our older youth we will adding an increased focus on life
skills such as cooking, organizing, planning, through such activites as
community volunteering, gardening and grocery shopping.
