Elves Special Needs Society

What is a FOP (Family-Oriented Program)?

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’ Youth 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.
