About Services in Cranbrook / Kootenay

While Cranbrook is the central location to the Kootenays, our region includes many smaller communities in the East and West Kootenays and extends to Kimberly, Invermere, Fernie, and over to Nelson, Castlegar, and Trail.
 
At Pivot Point we believe in customizing and tailoring our services to suit the individual and family. Typically, this starts with a discussion asking the question “in what ways can we help you?” We then provide flexibility and choices that honor and respect the culture of a family and home.
The majority of our work occurs in our client’s homes and out in the community. We have a group of frontline staff called behaviour interventionists/child care workers/life skills workers, transition coordinators and tutors who schedule sessions around families needs and availability. Their work is overseen by a behaviour consultant or educational consultant who develops and implements plans and who offers guidance to ensure we are making measurable differences. 
As we strategically grow and develop new programs it is exciting to h
ighlight a few that you might not be aware of:

We like to start the process with a PATH that lays the foundation for a person-centered planning approach and sets goals and dreams. From there we offer the services of a transition coordinator who provides leadership, regular meetings and guides the team
