Autism Services at ErinoakKids

On Feb. 6, 2019 the Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services announced changes to the Ontario Autism Program. Please click here to learn more about the new program on the MCCSS website.
 
Although the funding model is changing, ErinoakKids will continue to offer autism services at our three sites, delivered by qualified, caring professionals. For almost twenty years, families have relied on us to help their children grow, develop and reach their full potential. We are committed to continue providing these essential services. Thank you for your patience as we’ve been working through the implications of the new program and how we can best continue to serve children with autism and their families.

 

Our Autism Service Offerings

We have developed a selection of service packages, available to be purchased* now, that are designed to meet the diverse needs of children with autism. In the near future we will also offer a selection of services that can be purchased individually, for those who would like more choice. 

Your services can also be enhanced with speech language therapy, occupational therapy, physiotherapy, and social work services, providing an integrated multi-disciplinary approach. All services are offered under one roof, at any one of our three sites.

Please click on the program titles for more details, including a description of the program, timing, and cost.
