Our Approach

We believe in developing partnerships with the families and children we meet and we embark on the evaluation process together, taking the time to listen to your concerns. An evaluation process will always involve both meeting with the parents and evaluating your child individually. We also take into consideration how the child is doing at daycare or school, as well as information obtained from other professionals.

Our Goal

Evaluating a child is a responsibility we take very seriously. We are dedicated to providing an unparalleled service following the Best Practices Guidelines in terms of ASD evaluations and keeping up to date with the latest and most reliable tools.

Vanessa Choukroun 

Vanessa Choukroun graduated from the Université de Montréal in Psychoeducation in 2003 and has been a member of the Order of Psychoeducators of Quebec since 2011.

She has developed an expertise in the local health and social services network (CLSC) since 2008, as a psychoeducator in child and family services and later in the ID-ASD team. Vanessa had the opportunity to provide support for families in various psychosocial situations, to maximize the full developmental potential of her multi-age and multi-cultural clientele, to animate stimulation groups (development of communication precursors in non-verbal children with ASD; psychomotor stimulation). This experience allowed her to develop the know-how to support families when one of their member is given a diagnostic, and to orient them towards the appropriate resources.

Vanessa has participated in trainings such as PECS (Picture Exchange Communication System), TEACCH (Treatement and Education of Autistic and related Communication Handicapped Children), the specialized use of iPads, anti-bullying programs in ASD, and she is certified to use diagnostic tools such as the ADOS-2 and ADI-R.

Vanessa fully believes in the potential to adapt that persons with ASD have and to the neurodiversity movement. She firmly believes that her expertise, combined with that of other partners involved, can contribute to enhance the quality of life of her clients. She adheres to the idea that it takes a village to raise a child.

Vanessa works in French and English.
