Sam-dit-turbos

Sam-dit-turbos debuted in the fall of 2009. The goal of this program is to address the verbal and non-verbal communication needs of children with autism, and the social skills of autistic children aged 5 to 16. The unique approach aims to develop language and communication skills as well as fine and global motor skills within a socialization framework.

Rather than working one by one, according to the traditional model, SFOA chose to innovate by offering group speech therapy. Sam-dit Turbos’ team is made up of speech therapists, speech therapists, and animators, supervised by experienced speech therapists in autism.

Children work in small groups on a variety of learning activities specifically designed to meet their specific needs. This program is offered on Saturday mornings from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. from September to June. Every child receives intervention in speech therapy and motor activity.

Participants:

This program is offered to children aged 5 to 16 who are diagnosed with autism and who are verbal, able to formulate subject-verb-complement sentences, and who are able to follow group instructions.

Staff:

The program’s stakeholders are employees with experience in the field of autism, often having previously worked in an SFOA program. Interventions are led by speech-language pathologists and dedicated specialists.
