Airdrie Speech Therapy is a Private Specialized Service Provider approved by Family Supports for Children with Disabilities (FSCD) to create and implement a supported individualized program plan for your child and family once approved for Specialized Services. Airdrie Speech Therapy (Formerly C4) was established in 2008 to create an ability to offer a “one child, one team” approach to service delivery

Specialized Services (SS)

Specialized Services provides funding for families whose child has severe needs in at least 2 of the following 5 areas and these needs affect the family’s ability to function in home and in the community without support:

  • Communication and Social Skills
  • Physical and Motor Development
  • Behavior
  • Self-Help Skills and Adaptive Functioning
  • Cognitive Abilities

Connections 4’s home-based programs are designed to achieve goals as described in an Individual Service Plan (ISP). Based on both the child’s and family’s needs, this program may include a Behavioral Assistant (BA), Occupational Therapist (OT), Physical Therapist (PT), Speech and Language Pathologist (SLP), Psychologist / Behavior Specialist, and Clinical Coordinator.

Individual budgets for intervention are determined by FSCD recommendations based on individualized needs of the family and child. These determinations are based on professional documentation, parent reporting, in-home observations and collaboration with an independent panel of professionals.

Common Approach

Airdrie Speech Therapy partners with Foundation4 to support a common approach to service delivery for our children who are eligible for both SS and PUF programs. In doing so, our services are consistent and streamlined both in terms of team members and philosophy.

“An education is about the whole child, self-esteem, resilience, awareness of the world. It is not just being schooled and reciting the alphabet. Education takes a lifetime.”
