Needs Based Support, Consultation and Education for Diverse Human Needs
My services are available to ANYONE who is in the role of parenting, caring, educating or supporting children, adolescents, adults or seniors,
I also offer targeted personal coaching for autistic teens and adults.
While a diagnosis is not required to benefit from my services, they may be of
particular interest to those supporting someone with one of more of the following:
neurodevelopmental disorder (autism, ADHD etc.)
neurocognitive disorder (Alzheimer's etc.)
language or communication delay/disorder
physical or intellectual disability
loss of autonomy, or
other specific special need, condition or diagnosis
Each service is adapted to the needs of not only the individual who requires support,
but also to the needs of their support network.

TRAINING AND CERTIFICATION
What is a Special Care Counsellor?
According to the Quebec Association of Special Care Counsellors Code of Conduct,
“1.1 SPECIAL CARE COUNSELLOR (S.C.C) is defined as follows: A professional who intervenes with individuals or groups of individuals of any age who experience or are likely to experience various adjustment problems in the field of mental health, social services and education. The S.C.C. evaluates and accompanies the client through situations of daily living, educational, helping relationships, and through intervention techniques. The S.C.C. pursues objectives of social integration and personal development in the fields of prevention, education and rehabilitation.
1.2. Their role consists of observing and evaluating the needs, abilities, lifestyles and behaviours of persons with psychosocial adjustment problems. The S.C.C. may also proceed with the screening, assessment, detection and identification of undiagnosed disorders. They must also assess the suicide risk and dangerousness exhibited by a person in crisis. They note the data in the record and write progress reports, using the method designated by their organization.
1.3. The S.C.C. has the obligation to establish an intervention plan for each client assigned to them, within the context of a planned intervention process.”
