The Miriam Intervention programs endorse a person-centered and family-centered approach, while ensuring that the support provided is in keeping with the needs and decisions of the individual and their families. The goal is to focus on personal choice while recognizing the specialized, and often complex, needs of the individual and their families.
Currently, public services in Quebec for individuals with developmental disabilities and autism lack continuity, do not respond to the specific needs of individuals and their families and are very difficult to access. To support the community’s needs for services that are integrated, continuous, person-centered and evidence based, the Miriam Foundation filled the gaps by providing effective support and assessement services that significantly improve the quality of lives of individuals and their families.
The goal is to establish an array of services that span from early childhood to adulthood. This diverse range includes assessment and diagnosis, intervention, developmental skill-building, behavior management, social inclusion, leisure/recreation, and vocational support.
