Family Oriented Programming

What is a FOP?

Family Oriented Programming sessions are planned to specifically meet the needs of children with severe disabilities/delays in a developmentally appropriate way via supportive programming for families, parents, and caregivers.  A staff member from your child’s classroom team will be present during the sessions to individualize supports specific to your child.

Family Oriented Programming sessions are offered free of charge to parents/caregivers of children who are attending Elves Early Education programs. In addition, parents/caregivers of students in Elves School Program (Grades 1-12) are welcome to attend.

Each session will focus on a new topic such as sensory supports, picky eaters, toilet training, transition to Grade One, and how to survive the summer months.
