Who can provide an assessment?

Eligibility Criteria:

We ask care providers to be familiar with our eligibility criteria listed here:

Who Is Eligible?

As our beginner classes are 10 weeks, we ask that participants attend all sessions or min. 80% in order to complete the session.  Particpants who are unable to commit to our minimum, will be asked to retake a class to ensure instruction is not missed.

Care Provider Assessment

Clients may self-refer or have a support worker assist in registering for Orientation.

Once a client registers for Orientation you will be contacted and required to submit an Assessment Form 

We require clients to have on-going support while attending our program.  

If we have further questions about the assessment form we will be in touch.
