SNAP® Program

Do you know a child between the ages of 6 – 11 years old who is experiencing difficulty at home, at school and/or in the community?

Does the child display any of the following behavior?

  • Physically and/or verbally aggressive behaviour
  • Defiant behaviour
  • Problems with family relationships
  • Lack of self-control and problem-solving skills
  • Difficulty making and keeping healthy peer relationships
  • Stealing
  • Bullying
  • Vandalizing or damaging property

Our SNAP® Program can help the child you’re thinking about.

For more information about our programs, please contact SNAP® and a Family Child Worker will advise you of next steps. Central Intake Line: 905 544 7778.

Caregivers and their child attend the SNAP® Program once a week for an hour for 12 weeks. Group sessions are held simultaneously for both the caregivers and their child. Caregivers are taught effective child management strategies through group discussion, role-plays and home practice. In a separate meeting space, children are taught self-control skills, emotion-regulation skills, and problem-solving skills using the SNAP® strategy.
