Monarch House Autism Centre (www.monarchhouse.ca) was created by CBI Health Group to be a centre of excellence offering a multidisciplinary, integrated team approach for programming and intervention for children with ASD and other developmental disabilities. Monarch House has occupational therapists, speech and language pathologists, psychologists, and pediatricians all under one roof. The centre’s goal is to simplify the journey parents have to take from questions to interventions around ASD and other developmental disabilities.

Their intervention services include:
• Applied behavior analysis-based programs.
• Sensory integration.
• Communication-based interventions.

Monarch House is located at 3185 Willingdon Green, in Burnaby, and is now evaluating children for programming, intervention, and support needs. To learn more, schedule a meeting, or request a tour, call Alaric de Souza, director of operations, at 604 205-9204, or e-mail adesouza@cbi.ca.

Above is the information needed to cite this article in your paper or presentation. The International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) recommends the following citation style, which is the now nearly universally accepted citation style for scientific papers:
Halpern SD, Ubel PA, Caplan AL, Marion DW, Palmer AM, Schiding JK, et al. Solid-organ transplantation in HIV-infected patients. N Engl J Med. 2002;347:284-7.

About the ICMJE and citation styles

The ICMJE is small group of editors of general medical journals who first met informally in Vancouver, British Columbia, in 1978 to establish guidelines for the format of manuscripts submitted to their journals. The group became known as the Vancouver Group. Its requirements for manuscripts, including formats for bibliographic references developed by the U.S. National Library of Medicine (NLM), were first published in 1979. The Vancouver Group expanded and evolved into the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE), which meets annually. The ICMJE created the Recommendations for the Conduct, Reporting, Editing, and Publication of Scholarly Work in Medical Journals to help authors and editors create and distribute accurate, clear, easily accessible reports of biomedical studies.

An alternate version of ICMJE style is to additionally list the month an issue number, but since most journals use continuous pagination, the shorter form provides sufficient information to locate the reference. The NLM now lists all authors.

BCMJ standard citation style is a slight modification of the ICMJE/NLM style, as follows:

  • Only the first three authors are listed, followed by "et al."
  • There is no period after the journal name.
  • Page numbers are not abbreviated.
