A professional view of readaptation practice goes further than the abilities of child, youth and lifespan care personnel to show warmth, care and patience. A professional view point states that every day provides therapeutic services through specific relationships, activities, skills and techniques designed to meet the developing and ever-changing needs to clients.
All Educators in child, youth and lifespan care share a common belief that the care of clients and their families is one of the most fundamentally important task that a society performs, and in so doing, commit themselves to their Code of Ethics.
The Quebec Association of Educators seeks to involve all practitioners who work in the field of child, youth and lifespan care.
The membership includes child, youth and lifespan care staff, supervisors, administrators, teachers and organizations who are involved in caring for, and working within the lifespan of children, youth, adults and families.
