Therapy Services for Indigenous Youth
Anderson Therapy Services has collaborated and worked with Indigenous/First Nations, Inuit and Métis communities across Northern Canada, Ontario and Quebec for over 15 years.
We provide culturally sensitive and consistent services, which in turn, allows us to support youth in developing their skills academically, physically, and mentally.
Anderson Therapy Services has provided services for many remote communities who may not otherwise receive allied-health and mental health supports. Our service delivery model is built on a combination of visits to schools, daycare centers, and nursing stations/health centres as well as weekly online videoconferencing therapy sessions. The key to our success is creating close relationships with community members and training local staff to help with therapy sessions. This vital connection not only fosters capacity building but allows children to achieve their goals while receiving services in their home community.
Over the years, we have been invited to various communities across Canada to provide our services. We work closely with the child’s family, educators, school personnel, and health care providers to provide the best treatment possible. We are always honoured when asked to collaborate with community Chiefs, directors, Elders, and Jordan’s Principle Case Managers.
Our team of therapists have experience traveling to remote areas to conduct assessments and treatment, along with providing follow-up services online. During our visits, we also provide customized training for local staff and parents.
The Anderson Therapy team prides in their culturally-sensitive, innovative, and sustainable service model. We work closely with Health and Education Directors. Funding sources include health, core funding in education, special education, and Jordan’s Principle.
Our unique service delivery model, in partnership with communities, has helped many First Nations children and youth receive much needed allied and mental health services.
What We Do
Our clinicians will use a variety of evidence-based therapy techniques to help achieve your child’s speech-language goals. We always encourage families to seek early intervention; however, it’s never too late to seek services. Our team is prepared to help your child overcome their speech, language or literacy difficulties at any age.
Our SLPs and CDAs cater to the needs of the child and their family. Sessions are tailored to a child’s age and interests, and include a strong parental training component. We are proud to offer our services in the most convenient setting.
