Josée Massé is a registered Child and Youth Care Practitioner (CYC-P) (with the Ontario Association of Child and Youth Care.) She is a Certified Early Start Denver Model Therapist (though the UC Davis Mind Institute. She is also an Advanced Certified Autism Specialist (with the International Board of Credentialing and Continuing Education Standards) and is currently both the Assistant Director and Parent Coach for our East-end office. She first fell in love with working with young children as an Early Childhood Educator. Through integration programs and exposure to children with particular needs, she quickly got drawn to the uniqueness of the autism spectrum.
Josée is known for her energy and continuous search for knowledge to better serve and support children and families. Her dedication to on-going learning and helping children with ASD has only grown over the past 19 years.
Her hopes as a professional is to pass on her love and passion for teaching children with ASD. The quote that has inspired her through challenges has been “Never discourage someone who is making progress, no matter how slow.” These words rings true for the interventionist (parent, educator and extended family) and the child they hope see progress.
Comprehensive Intensive Programs, Behavioural Intervention and Parent Coaching sessions can be done in both French and English, at our location at 2310 St-Laurent Blvd, Unit 214 or in clients’ home. Please contact Emerging Minds Est at 613-790-0241.
