Our History

SCYS is an agency providing Counseling, Family Outreach, ABA therapy, Social, 
Life Skills, Employment, Communication programs, Behavioural
Programs, Assessments & other programs for children, youths & adults in Peel, Halton and the GTA. The programs will help to provide a positive foundation to local schools, communities & community programs and the families of our clients & the clients themselves; with support & a better understanding of how to work with children, youth & adults

Our programs offer a holistic approach looking at the client as a whole & include nutrition into our treatment plan, this is important as many environmental factors affect our children. We don’t only look at behaviour we look at all factors – health, nutrition, medication, environment & make a treatment plan based on these factors. Looking at behaviour alone is not the solution! 

No two children are a like. The children, youths & adults who come to SCYS have unique situations requiring assessment and treatment.  The committed and experienced staff at SCYS provides therapeutic and educational services to help children, youths & adults, whether in the community, at home, to lead productive & enriched lives.

 We challenge every student to surpass his or her own personal best and help them over the hills and through the valleys of these growing years.

What we do

  • Classroom instruction utilizing the principals of Applied Behavioural Analysis

  •  1:1 & low ratio groups to maximize each child’s learning

  • ​Behaviour Management, Social & Life skills groups
