Leader in Training (LIT) Program @ Magnificent Minds Inc.
Our Leader in Training program (LIT) operates at a low-ratio, is clinically supervised, and meets the funding criteria for Core Clinical Services.
We offer 4, 6 and 8 week session blocks.
Designed for neurodivergent adolescents and teens, we support our LITs in building a variety of adaptive life skills that support their continued growth and development over the summer months under the framework of short-term, goal-oriented therapy. Using fundamentals of progressive, and neurodiversity affirming Applied Behaviour Analysis, LITs join us to build vocational, social, communication, and daily living skills to name just a few. Using a variety of assessment and goal-setting tools, we support our LITs in skill-building across developmental domains--but it feels just like a job placement with all the respect and dignity our campers deserve (yes, you'll even get a staff shirt).
*For LIT placements, a facility tour and meet and greet with prospective LIT and Directors must occur; we may also, depending on individual need, schedule a trial day to assess program suitability and level of support required for maximum engagement.
