Kamloops Autism Program
The Kamloops Autism Program (K.A.P.) provides centre based early intensive behavioural intervention (EIBI), for children up to age six, that have been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). The program is based on evidence that early behavioural intervention between two and six years of age demonstrates the best outcomes.
If you have concerns that your child may be showing signs of Autism, please refer to the Red Flags for Autism page.
K.A.P. provides a multidisciplinary child and family centered program that identifies each child’s individual strengths and needs. The program builds upon these skills and competencies in a positive and supportive way. The goals of the program are to enable children diagnosed with ASD, to achieve maximum independence and to enjoy the highest possible quality of life within their family and community.
