 WE HAVE ADDED A NEW CATEGORY IN OUR CATALOG

"ADAPTIVE PHYSICAL THERAPY and EDUCATION" 

YOU CAN FIND IT BY PRESSING HERE

Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) is a diagnosis that describes kids with significant social, communicative, and behavioral challenges. While the diagnosis is mostly associated with difficulty with communication, there are also common physical issues experienced by children with ASD.

They may have low muscle tone, or have a tough time with gross motor coordination (running, kicking, throwing, etc.). These issues can interfere with basic day-to-day functioning -- and they're almost certain to interfere with social and physical development.

Children with autism often develop typically for a short period of time, and then present symptoms as toddlers. Physical symptoms range from difficulty with coordination to lack of muscular strength.

Balance may be an issue: children on the spectrum may find it very hard to ride a bike or use skates.

Perhaps most significantly, autistic children are likely to have difficulty with "motor planning." In other words, they may have the skills to climb onto a swing and be able to hang on -- but they may have a very difficult time coordinating their bodies to "pump" and get the swing moving.

New research on those with autism found that children with better motor skills are more proficient at socialization and communication than those who have physical deficits.

There are specialists, physical therapists, who are becoming much more involved in the lives of children with ASD, in order to help these kids improve their day to day functioning from early childhood well into adulthood.

AUTISM FUNDING FORMS

Need to order products under the BC Autism Funding Branch?

We can help with the paperwork and payments.  

By working with us, you can instruct the Branch to pay Perfect Day directly.  

You won't have to pay and wait for reimbursement.  We'll do the waiting for you.

In order for us to get started, we need a copy of the approval letter from the Branch as well as a copy of the form that was filled out by your Behavioural Consultant or other recognized health care professional.  It's called a Justification for Equipment/Supplies (also known as the JFE) , and you can find a blank copy of it here.

Once we get those two documents, we in turn fill out a form called the Request To Pay (or RTP), and then attach our quote.  We send the form and quote back to you via email. All you have to do is sign and date the form, and send it in to the Branch.  If you wish, you can send it back to us and we'll get it to the Branch, whatever you find easier.

Once  we receive approval of our quote, we deliver the order to you. And that's it!

We act in the strictest confidence.  We've worked with numerous families this way and all have been very pleased with the process.

Call (250.216.2445) or email us if you have any questions.
