COVID-19 Closure Related Updates & Resources
This page is designed to provide families who receive therapy, support and services through ErinoakKids with updates on our COVID-19 closure and procedures. The page will be updated on an ongoing basis.
ErinoakKids Site Closures
Until further notice, all ErinoakKids sites are closed and all in person programs, workshops, camps and services are cancelled. Although our sites are closed, our staff are still working from home to support children and youth and their families, and ensure that we are ready and in the best position to welcome everyone back when our sites reopen.

Information for DFO Service Providers and Families
During the closure, ErinoakKids staff working on the Ontario Autism Program - Direct Funding Option (DFO) are working remotely and continue to process all service-related documents submitted through the website portal
Mail service to ErinoakKids sites has been temporarily suspended, so all service-related documents should be submitted electronically through the portal
At this time, all DFO program guidelines and documentation timelines remain in place. Please undertake best efforts to submit all documents (invoices, behaviour plans, etc.) electronically within the usual timelines.
We understand that some activities that require in-person contact with clients or providers may not be able to be completed at this time. If you require an exception to the program timelines or have other questions please contact the following:
- DFO Service Providers: Please email Danielle Gauci, Program Coordinator, at email@example.com
- DFO Families: Please call your Client Financial Services Clerk and leave a message – they will be monitoring their voicemail daily and will reply to your inquiry.
Longo’s Family Resource Centre
Please be assured that families will not be charged late fees for keeping borrowed toys from the Longo’s Family Resource Centre during our closure. Once our sites reopen, please return borrowed items to the Centre. In the meantime, enjoy the toys!
