I was getting phone calls daily from the school about my 6 year old son’s disruptive behaviour. I was a ball of anxiety, and didn’t know what to do. The Behaviour Therapist came to school meetings with me to be sure the school was implementing their suggestions, and to facilitate a less stressful, smooth, and consistent daily routine. My son also received occupational therapy to strengthen his fine motor skills, and to build his self-esteem and confidence. With their help, he got over that hurdle, and he is now thriving in school. We would not be where we are today without the compassionate, caring, helpful guidance and support of the professionals at this clinic.
This clinic has been a true blessing to our family. My son struggled with strong emotions of anger and anxiety from life situations we had experienced. He participated in the Managing Me Program and though he went literally kicking and screaming he learned valuable life skills. I cannot thank the staff enough for connecting with my son and helping him through his struggles. He has began individual counselling and we have seen a complete turnaround in his behaviour and an ability to manage his emotional responses. He asked to take part in another program recently and gained more valuable life lessons to help with social situations at school and with peers. Our home has become a much happier place and my son a much happier boy. Thank you to all the staff!
I have had the pleasure of working with the behavior therapy team for my son's ABA therapy as well as the occupational therapist team for his OT therapy. The staff are hard working and very encouraging when my son or myself are having a bad day, very sympathetic and very good listeners. My son really likes his OT sessions and comes out smiling. I can't thank the clinic enough for helping my son and our family. Being able to use their services while we are on endless wait lists has lifted a huge weight off my shoulders. We are just starting therapies, but I am encouraged with what the clinic can do to help us.
We have participated in many of the services and programs offered at IHS/Kid’s Clinic over the past 4 years. Our son has seen many health professionals and other support services from the community and education system but we have had the best experience and progress with the caring, knowledgeable and professional team at IHS/Kid’s clinic. The enthusiastic and positive approach to supporting the child to build their confidence, focus on their strengths and provide a full range of practical options and information has had a significant impact on our son’s life both in school and at home. We have always felt supported as parents and never pressured to make quick decisions about care needs or services. The team has all been exceptional from the Physicians to Occupational Therapy to Behavior Therapy/Tutoring to social skills building through PALS and other programs - we feel our son is gaining important tools in his toolbox to address his challenges and prepare him to face the future with success.
