Four Points, Inc., Tracie Lindblad, President
Four Points Inc. was founded in June 1997 due to the overwhelming response of families looking for services for their children. Four Points operates in conjunction with the Child Development Centre of Oakville which is a multidisciplinary centre providing clients with a full range of services including: Audiology, Speech - Language Pathology, Resource Library, Behavioural Therapy, Psychological Services, Case Management, and in doing so offers families a range of services that can be individually accessed and coordinated to provide comprehensive services.
Four Points believes that early intervention is essential in providing children with the pieces they need in order to complete the puzzle of P.D.D./Autism. Four Points provides direct therapy to clients by providing an innovative intervention approach focusing on the four major aspects in a child's life:
Children diagnosed with PDD/Autism are challenged in areas that my limit development from infancy and onward. Through structured and sequential early intervention these children will be provided with the missing pieces that will give them the opportunity to live to their fullest.
Research suggests that the most effective intervention strategies are those chosen by the parents and caregivers. At Four Points, we work with you to implement the intervention strategy that suits your family's lifestyle and philosophy. Parents and caregivers know their children best, and are most committed to a strategy they believe in.
This can be the most rewarding or the most frustrating experience for your child. Let us work with your teachers, schools, and boards of education to make this a truly positive, life-altering experience.
We can help provide your child with the tools needed to function in our world -- on their terms.”

very closely with Dr. James Bebko of York University and Dr. Carolyn
Lennox who are the consulting psychologists to ACIS.
proud to say our IBI program is very comprehensive as it includes
collaboration with SLPs and OTs as well as the educational team. We
help develop IEPs and provide trained shadows for classroom integration.
travel outside of the immediate catchments region (once every month or two
depending on the time of year) to administer staff training,
consultations, assessments and program development. We will travel
to Guelph, Hamilton, Cambridge (for example) but only during certain
times of the year. However, we do not provide ITs (mediators)
to service this region although we can train staff that the family
has already recruited. For parents who are not interested in
hiring a "team" we can set up the programs/binder.
We do however, provide "teams" and oversee the program for our catchment region, which is Markham, Pickering, Aurora, Richmond Hill, Thornhill, North York, Maple, Woodbridge. If families live within this region we can offer a "team" with full services (assessments, programs, supervision etc) and this ranges in price from $20,000 and up depending on the treatment plan the family has in mind (we offer different plans). In this regard we are very flexible which I believe makes us unique-we customize plans so that we are able to take into consideration the families needs/expectations. Grace Damouni, Director/Founder”
