All of the autism services programs at ErinoakKids are available to any child with autism, regardless of where they live. Our qualified therapists would love to help families living near our Brampton, Mississauga, and Oakville sites, but we also welcome families from Vaughan, Etobicoke, Toronto, Hamilton, Guelph and beyond, especially now that we have virtual services available.
As one of the pioneers in providing autism services in Ontario, and as the largest provider of those services in the province, we have deep expertise and proven success in helping tens of thousands of children with autism achieve their full potential. All ErinoakKids autism programs are clinically supervised by Psychologists and Board Certified Behaviour Analysts (BCBAs), who work in an interdisciplinary approach with Speech Language Therapists and Occupational Therapists. If you’re a parent or guardian of a child with autism, we look forward to working with you!
Other Clinical Services Available
Children and youth living within Peel and Halton Regions and Dufferin County (our catchment area for government funded services) who are receiving autism services from ErinoakKids are also able to access any other rehabilitation or treatment services for which they qualify, such as speech language therapy, occupational therapy, physiotherapy, or social work services at no additional cost, and at the same location they receive autism services.
