Janus Academy Society offers three unique programs to individuals with ASD. The following summaries highlight the continuity of services we offer allowing individuals to transition into school and through to adulthood, while maintaining consistency in service model delivery and connection to their families.
Our School Program specializes in providing an educational approach that is based on the principles of Applied Behaviour Analysis within structured individualized instruction and small group teaching sessions. Our curriculum is based on Alberta Education’s Program of Studies. We follow a modified program that is geared to the individual needs of our students. We operate on a traditional school calendar (September to June).
Our Adult Community Access Program focuses on the transition to adulthood for individuals with ASD. The group size is small and maintains the low ratio of staff to participant. Services for this program focus on social skills/social thinking, adaptive living skills, community based activities, job skills training, leisure and recreational activities and building personal support networks. Funding for this program is offered through an exemption in the Persons with Developmental Disabilities (PDD) Family Managed funding program.
Our Summer Camp Program is for children 6 – 18 years of age and is based on the philosophy that every child should be given the opportunity to participate and experience summer camp within a safe and fun environment. By creating positive interactions and stimulating environments, children have the opportunity to communicate, take notice of and interact with their peers and build upon skills that will enhance their quality of life all while having fun.
