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 Kootenays.
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. With our practice based in Applied Behaviour Analysis we build learning and intervention sessions into activities and promote fun, play based learning.
We offer both individual and group behaviour intervention programs, behaviour consultation, parent coaching, summer camps and much more. Branch Out Learning and Behaviour Therapy has center-based programs in Fernie, offering services in Cranbrook, Kimberley, Elkford and Sparwood outreach services available throughout the East Kootenay’s.
