Our early intervention programs are based on Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) and two curricula are employed, Verbal Behavior (VB) and Early Start Denver Model (ESDM). All these services are private not-for profit and partially paid for by the families of the clients and the balance is subsidized by the Miriam Foundation.

MateriaTech is a bilingual educational resource bank with over 6,000 items. Organizations, professionals and families have access to this resource that reduce the burden of both financial and human resources that can be spent on the purchase and creation of these materials.

Adult leisure activities are offered on evenings and weekends for adults with ND. Leisure groups provide the opportunity to socialize in a peer group, develop friendships, practice appropriate social behaviors in the community, learn new skills and, above all else, have fun!

Miriam Innovation is a bilingual training and resource centre that develops training programs, conferences, workshops and resources on autism spectrum disorders and neurodevelopmental disabilities for professionals, paraprofessionals and parents.
