Brianna was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) at 18 months. Brianna and her family attended our North Office programs and have received service coordination, audiology, occupational therapy, developmental therapy and speech language therapy. Since starting services at Surrey Place Centre, Brianna has become more engaged and interested in interacting with others. She has become a more purposeful communicator. She is now able to sit to eat a meal and sit to play with toys! She is able to listen to her mother so she can hold her hand and move around safely in their community.
Brianna’s mother had the following to say about her experience at Surrey Place: “After one year of working with Surrey Place Centre, my daughter is able to hug me and stay longer in my arms.”
