The Kindergarten Assessment & Consultation Program (KACP) is offered through Children’s Centre Thunder Bay, and is designed to assist kindergarten teachers in both the Lakehead Public School, and the Thunder Bay Catholic District School systems. This service supports students who have significant and complex developmental and behavioural difficulties.
The goal of the KACP is to help kindergarten teachers better understand and meet the needs of these students, which is achieved through a process involving observation, consultation, and recommendations for intervention, as well as referrals to other community resources, if necessary. No mental health treatment is provided directly through this service.
Referrals are accepted through the school, with parental consent. Parents interested in having these services provided for their child may contact their child's teacher, or their school board.
