REACH CHOICES PROGRAM

CHOICES offers BC, SLP, OT, PT – fee for service

CHOICES offers you Behaviour Consultant, SLP, OT & PT Services: 

CHOICES Fee for Service program is delivering one-to-one virtual sessions during the COVID-19 crisis with our REACH professionals.

When might you need a Behaviour Consultant?

If you have a child who may have difficulty following routines or perhaps there are signs of aggression with siblings or other family members. He or she may seem to have unpredictable behaviours or often react adversely or become self injurious.

Speech Language Pathologist (SLP) Services:

Speech-language pathologists, also known as speech therapists, provide services that focus on verbal and non-verbal communication skill development.

Occupational Therapist (OT) Services:

An Occupational Therapist (also known as an OT) helps children in the development of skills that are needed in their daily activities. These may include self-care (such as eating, swallowing, dressing, and toileting) or productivity (which involves play and fine motor activities such as holding a pencil, cutting with scissors, and drawing) or leisure activities (swimming, soccer and hockey).

Physiotherapist (PT) Services:

A Physiotherapist (also known as a PT) helps promote gross motor development of infants and children.  Help may be needed when a child has difficulty acquiring the motor skills expected within their age range.

CHOICES also offers virtual groups:

Music Therapy:

REACH music therapy  glee club uses music to encourage teamwork, patience and self-confidence. Participants will use their imagination to take on different points of view and practice expressing different emotions in a fun and supportive environment!

At the end of August, DISNEY FAN CLUB begins and all participants will sing and play games based on all your favourite songs. Contact katies@reachchild.org to enroll.

We feel empowered with simple strategies that we can use on our own to improve the quality of our life and are excited about the future! 🙂 💙 Sent with gratitude 💙

Denise, Natalie’s grandmother

Heather Anderson Pickell has been a life saver for our family. Our Granddaughter has ASD, ADHD, OCD, Anxiety, Depression & Extreme behaviour and mood swings. It took Heather a number of visits before our Granddaughter would even let her in her room and talk to her. Because of Heather’s natural ability to connect with children, she was an instant friend. From there, Heather works her Behavioral/Counselling magic & our Granddaughter has improved immensely. It’s going to take a long time but Heather is in for the long haul and at times, rearranges her schedule to accommodate the patterns of sleep and mood that is our Granddaughter. Heather works tirelessly for families including sending emails late at night after her long day with clients. I appreciate all her communication & suggestions & input, she is amazing. She has made such a difference to our family way of life. We are all a lot calmer & happier & our Granddaughter is learning how to communicate her feelings and manage her emotions better. We are so grateful to Heather & REACH & grateful that this wonderful organization was recommended to us.

Trish Meier

Sometimes, it is hard enough to move through life on a day to day basis, but to do so with an autistic child has it’s challenges to say the least. Heather is like my Guardian Angel, or even my best friend. Whether I email, call or text her with my questions or issues, she is so helpful, prompt and best of all honest with her answers. As a parent we often feel lost, or helpless, and she will always reassure us that we are doing a good job and get us on the right track again. Not only is our son doing better socially, but our family is more balanced and stronger together. We all benefit having Heather in our lives, we are so grateful and thankful for all she has done for us and taught us.

PBS parent

You have also showed us that our feelings of frustration are normal and that things will get better.
