You will also have a background in delivering comprehensive assessments and evidence-based interventions for children and youth.

Additionally will be the type of person who fits into a cohesive team culture of collaborative practice, openness, humour, and respect across disciplines and will engender confidence, trust and rapport with clients, their support networks and other agencies and service providers.
