Spectrum Intervention Group
19 Grenfell Cr, Suite 100, Ottawa, Ontario

As a registered charity, our objective is to provide quality services that are as affordable as possible to families through a combination of fees and fundraising. Fundraising directly offsets some of the teaching/instructor therapist costs incurred in the delivery of Spectrum's programs. Effectively meeting the needs of the children we work with, often means maintaining a very low staff to child ratio - typically either 1:1 or 1:2. Our experience has been that this low staff to child ratio, combined with our commitment to providing ongoing clinical training and supervision of our staff, are the key variables contributing to our success in delivering high quality programs based on ABA principles and procedures.
