Le Parapluie Bleu is a bi-lingual multidisciplinary therapy center in Chomedey Laval, Quebec. Our mission is to offer research-based therapy services for children and adolescents with Autism and Developmental Delays. Tutoring services are also offered. When breaking skills down and teaching step-by-step using positive reinforcement strategies, children are more likely to reach daily and long term goals.
Therapies offered include:
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is the scientific study of behavior that uses learning principles to promote positive behavior changes. Behavior is assessed by observing antecedents and consequences in the environment. The environment is then manipulated to promote adaptive skills using positive reinforcement strategies. ABA uses procedures that have been demonstrated to help individuals learn socially meaningful skills. Principles and teaching strategies may include reinforcement, prompting, prompt fading, chaining, shaping, and task analysis. Generalization and maintenance allow new skills to occur in other environments. At our center, Speech Language Pathologists and Occupational Therapists also use learning principles to promote language and motor skills. As a team, we meet the specific needs of your child. Speech Therapy focuses on language communication and Occupational Therapy focuses on helping the child to reach goals that are related to his/her occupation. The child’s occupation is to be able to play and engage in motor skills/self-care/academics tasks that are developmentally age appropriate.
