Who We Are
Founded in 2017, New Heights Autism Support Society was started in Kamloops, British Columbia by Patricia Kennedy.
Patricia is a category “A” Behavior Consultant on the Registry of Autism Service Providers List. She has 25 years experience working in education, 15 of which were in First Nation's schools. Several years have been working specifically with families who have children with autism and other special needs, including hiring and supervising Behavior Interventionists (BI) and Child Care Workers (CCW). We also do ongoing training and supervision of Behaviour Interventionists. The vision is the provision of family friendly services to assist your child and family experience.
We are a group of professionals and para-professionals who have worked together for three years. We recognize the lack of choices for services for families of children with autism in Kamloops and the surrounding area. Motivated us to reach outside of the box for a unique solution, we decided to provide services to children in Kamloops and the Interior of BC.
- We hire, train, and closely supervise our Behaviour Interventionists.
- We collaborate with multidisciplinary teams (SLP, OT, PT, School)
