Branch Out Learning
Branch Out Learning and Behaviour Therapy began with the goal of providing a creative therapy program for children with autism, developmental disabilities, or any challenges related to learning and behaviour in the East Kootenay's.
Branch Out values 'whole person' focused programming. With our practice based in Applied Behaviour Analysis we build learning and intervention sessions into activities and promote fun, play based learning while also supporting whole person and family wellness.
Branch Out is a family-centered service where individual behaviour intervention programs are developed based on the needs and interests of each child and in accordance with family goals and needs.
We offer individual behaviour intervention program plans by a RASP designated behaviour consultant, home based and virtual behaviour consultation, parent coaching, equine assisted learning and much more.
Branch Out Learning and Behaviour Therapy offers services in Fernie, Jaffray, Cranbrook, Kimberley, Elkford, Sparwood, outreach services available throughout the East Kootenay’s.
