The only one of its kind in Quebec, Yaldei is a not-for-profit developmental centre and school devoted to helping children reach their full potential. Yaldei is comprised of a multi-disciplinary team of experienced therapists and educators dedicated to early intervention treatment, individualized therapies and special education programs for children from birth to 18 years. Our integration of advanced clinical, behavioral, educational and family support services provides children with the opportunity to learn how to walk, talk, play, attend school and lead productive lives as part of their community.
How are we unique?
No other organization in Quebec offers such a diverse range of services under one roof. Yaldei offers a unique approach, developed from a philosophy that changes lives. Through a transdisciplinary approach our staff work as a team that moves beyond the walls of discipline-silos to innovate new life-transforming therapies. Thanks to our expert clinical team, we source and offer the best approaches from around the world.
The impact of our programs and services highlights the difference between simply existing and celebrating life for special needs children.
For a child who is profoundly delayed, Yaldei’s approach gives them a second chance in life: learning to walk and talk, instead of being wheelchair-bound and mute for the rest of their lives. On a family level, Yaldei reduces the stress on families by providing a global approach to services under one roof. Family stress can include siblings suffering from reduced parental attention, and marriages suffering from the emotional stress and financial burden of caring for a child with special needs. At a societal level, Yaldei’s work creates a major reduction in cost to the public healthcare system to care for people with developmental delays over their lifetimes.
