Supportive Options & Solutions


Supportive Options & Solutions specializes in assisting persons with special needs and their families in a Family Centered Approach to:

  • Create a positive behavior support.
  • Learning life skills & social, emotional ability.
  • Collaborating with other professionals to design, then implement plans into daily life within the home and community.
  • Aid in transitioning from child to adulthood.

We listen, get to know you, then:

  • Identify and build on strengths.
  • Deliver direct interventions that are life style appropriate.
  • Teach new skills with dignity and respect

Supportive Options & Solutions (SOS) was developed by Nellie Krombach after 15 years experience working in schools, homes and in the North Thompson area with people who have special needs.

As a special needs consultant, Nellie will bring her skills into the comfort of your own home to:
  • Listen, offer encouragement and provide support.
  • Work collaboratively with you and other involved professionals in a multidisciplinary team approach to design an individualized family service plan. This single, comprehensive plan will be tailor-made to suit your family's lifestyle.
  • Help you implement this plan with your family member into daily life, at home and in the community. SOS family service plans are easy to understand and follow, and focus on the positive.

Nellie and her staff are known for the warm and supportive way they teach appropriate social behaviours, anger management, sex education, communication skills and personal hygiene to those with special needs. They creatively encourage emotional growth while teaching specific life skills.

Behavioural Interventions

Behavior is learned and can be unlearned.
Challenging behaviors can interfere with opportunities and capacity to participate in and be included in valued everyday activities.
We can work with you in a functional approach to change difficult behaviors. Starting by identifying the reason and message of the behavior, then creating a positive behavior support plan.

"Nellie listened to our needs, offered ideas and discussed new approaches. She always found time to be available for us. She has a natural, calm, supportive nature that helped my daughter relax, progress and feel included. Nellie's contributions supported our family and enhanced my daughter's quality of life."
~ Denise Anger, mother

"Nellie really helped me to realize my goals in my own community. She is a kind and gentle person who is also very practical. One example of how Nellie helped me is that I have always wanted to be a mechanic. Over a number of years, Nellie found people to teach me skills for repairing bicycles and helped me get the appropriate tools, as well as bicycles to repair and sell. I love every minute of doing that work and people often contact me directly when they have a bike that can be fixed up for re-sale."
~ Gillian Tomyn, adult client

"Nellie has been an invaluable resource to our family. Since our daughter was little, Nellie not only offered support, but assisted us with concrete planning, problem solving and goal setting, always keeping the vision alive for our daughter. She has done this with insight, caring, optimism and an empowering belief in the rights and potential of people with special needs. thanks to Nellie, that vision is now reality as Jade is living a life happy and included in her community."
~ Katrine Palmer, mother
