Home & Community Support Program

New Heights School & Learning Services runs a unique specialized program tailored to preschool and school age children with autism spectrum disorder, or have similar learning differences. New Heights Home & Community Support (HCS) is a play-based program that utilizes the strengths and interests of each child to address developmental goals.

HCS is an in-home program that intakes autistic children between the ages of 2.5 to 5 years of age and supports families and their children up to the age of seven with Family Support for Children with Disabilities (FSCD) funded agreements (either Developmental Behavioural Supports or Specialized Services). A multidisciplinary team of professionals works directly with parents and their children in the home and out in the community supporting parents with individualized strategies through play-based therapy based on parents’ priorities for their children. 

We offer services funded through Family Support for Children with Disabilities (FSCD).

  • Families with an approved Specialized Services contract receive consultation and coaching at home and in the community from a multi-disciplinary team including a developmental assistant, psychologist, occupational therapist, and speech language pathologist. For families with a kindergarten child attending New Heights, their home and classroom teams work together under a Common Approach to ensure consistency across all environments.
  • Families with approved contracts for Developmental Behavioural Supports receive consultation and coaching at home and in the community from a developmental assistant and professionals in one to two disciplines including occupational therapy, speech and language, or psychology.

The HCS program strives to ensure that comprehensive supports and programs are accessible to children and their families year-round.
