Home and Community Support Program

New Heights’ Home and Community Support (HCS) Program gives students and their families the extracurricular support they need to be successful in their homes and the community. We have mindfully created these programs for all of our families with students from pre-school to adulthood.

We offer several programs 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 preschool 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 or 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 there are comprehensive supports and programs accessible to students and their families year-round. We offer workshops for parent support and education. We plan community play dates to connect families and foster socialization between children. We run a summer social skills camp called New Heights Backyard to build friendships between students outside of the classroom.

Throughout everything we do, we are dedicated to lending the maximum support to families and students as they learn and grow towards their highest potential.
