Are you looking for specific professionals to work with your child? In order to access autism funding for children under six, parents must employ professionals who are on the Registry of Autism Service Providers (RASP). Search the RASP here. For children over 6 (and for all other professionals that may or may not be listed in the RASP), we hope that our Professionals Directory (below) will help you find who you are looking for.
Tip: You will want to use the “Select Category” drop down menu below to narrow down your search, or you can use the Search box.
Please note: If you encounter any listing that is out of date, we would love to know about it. Please contact us. Also if you know about a professional not yet listed in our database, you can add a listing to our directory here.
The Penticton Centre for Exceptional Learning (Penticton EXCEL) was created by a group of parents who wanted more for their children. More than what public schools could offer. More than what they could offer by home-schooling. A learning centre designed and staffed specifically for students with high functioning autism. A sensory-sensitive centre where students could augment their Ministry of Education curriculum with life skills, social skills, and executive function skills. A centre without bullies. A centre where being “unique” is “normal”.
This type of alternative education for students with autism is not new, but it is new to the South Okanagan. There are excellent private learning centres in which students on the Autism Spectrum are thriving: our children deserve the chance to thrive too.
Penticton EXCEL is operated by The Penticton Centre for Exceptional Learning Society (an incorporated non-profit society).
The goal of the centre is not to profit by way of families dealing with autism; the goal is to support and encourage our students so that they can excel.
