TPAS provides supports to the child and family that help to make the transition from IBI to new environments as smooth as possible.
Family Support Coaches assist with appropriate referrals as children transition out of IBI and in to full time school, including a referral to Connections for Students.
Connections for Students
The Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Children and Youth Services have developed Connections for Students, a collaborative approach to improving transitions for students with autism spectrum disorders.
Approximately 6 months before a child prepares to transition from Intensive Behavioural Intervention, a child specific, school based transition team will be established. Members will include the school principal, parents, teachers, School Support Program (SSP) ASD consultants, and school board staff with applied behaviour analysis (ABA) expertise and other team members as required. Teams will develop plans that are tailored to the specific needs of the student. For more information see the School Support Program.
