Surrey Centre for Autism & Child Development
Building For Children Together Campaign
Without the support of the community, children with special need are at risk of being left behind.
We have an opportunity to help make services for children with autism and other special needs more accessible than ever.
Reach Child & Youth Development Society has been helping children with special needs and their families for over 60 years.
Our commitment to children and families has been unyielding. Now we need you to help lay the foundation for the future.
THE NEW CENTRE PROVIDES:
- Support children who have Autism
& developmental delays.
- Help vulnerable children grow to reach their potential.
- Strengthen Families.
- Complement existing community services.
Reach is at the forefront of best practices in British Columbia for children with autism spectrum disorders. – CARF Accreditation Survey 2017
Together we can make the Building for Children Together Surrey Campaign happen:
Support Children with Autism
Autism effects 1 out of 48 children and 1 in 29 boys.
Individuals with autism may have serious cognitive disabilities, sensory problems and behaviours such as tantrums, self-injury and aggression.
Help children Grow
REACH has been helping children with Autism since our inception with appropriate, intensive interventions and behaviour support.
We reduce the impact of symptoms and increase positive outcomes for children
with autism and their families.
Reach recognizes the fundamental, life-long role of the parent and that the most effective way to provide support is to enable and empower families. We grow family capacity with education and family-centered, individualized and responsive service, ensuring families experience success and that each child is given the opportunity to reach their potential.
Compliment Existing Services
15% of the population has special needs. The prevalance of Autism and special needs is growing and many needs are
unaddressed. Having a new Autism and Behaviour Centre will ensure that the
identified changing needs of children and families in the community are met effectively and in a timely manner.
WE NEED YOUR HELP because every child deserves the opportunity to reach their full Potential
Together we can make it happen!
