Monarch House believes in providing the right support, at the right time. Our parent coaching model provides families of children needing specialized or consultative services with expert intensive support, with the goal of building capacity in families in their ability to facilitate the development of their children. We incorporate parent/caregiver education, intensive initial parent training, and ongoing service plan development and oversight. Parent education topics will be determined based on areas of need, including but not limited to, diagnosis/autism, evidence-based intervention, service planning, data collection, social communication, challenging behaviour, learning, motor development, community inclusion, meal time, toileting, sleep routines, and play.

 

Social skills groups

Monarch House - Waterloo uses evidence-based practice to improve social skills and flexibility in children. The social groups at Monarch House-Waterloo allow for children to practice their social skills with children who are also learning and then use those tools in other environments. Our social groups are tailored to the individual needs of children as we aspire to have each child reach their goals. These social groups are truly social, as we look to achieve the children working together to reach daily goals, give reinforcement for encouraging others and find things in common with their peers. We have seen success in our social groups that assist children with emotional regulation and flexibility, as well as making meaningful connections with their peers.
