“I have been employed at Lead for eight years.  Being part of a team while supporting children to reach their potential is extremely rewarding.  Learning from speech, occupational and behavioral therapists has enhanced my skills and been inspiring.  I appreciate the numerous benefits that Lead offers as well, including wellness days and a health spending account”.

“I have been working with Lead Foundation for over six years and have found it to be a very rewarding experience. I have gained so much from my time as a CDS as well as working in the HR department. I have found everyone here to be very supportive and encouraging. There have been many positive changes over the years and we are continuing to grow as an agency.”

The work is consistently changing and therefore new and interesting every day. All of the passionate and hard-working people at Lead make coming to work every day so rewarding.

“I love to work with families and support them in utilizing their strengths and the strengths of their children. It has been such a pleasure for me to be involved in family outings, which in the past would have been a source of stress due to lack of cooperation and outbursts, but with practice and support are now a bonding experience full of enjoyable family conversation. This is the joy of Lead, helping families create fun experiences and memories. ”

“My child is patient, calm, therefore so is our family.”

“I see how much calmer he is and how proud he is of himself when he is making progress. It makes everyone happy!”

“Within six months he was meeting his goals and enjoying preschool. He was playing well with other children, he was following the “rules” of the classroom, knew his colours, numbers and his alphabet and was chatting up a storm.”

“Our child formed loving and trusting relationships with his preschool teachers and his aid (Child Development Specialist). Lead too opened his world by giving him the tools he needed to successfully communicate and participate in not only the classroom but also at home and in the community.”
