Autism Program & Services at KidsAbility
The Ontario Autism Program (OAP) offers support to families of children and youth on the Autism spectrum. Children and youth who have been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) by a qualified professional are eligible. Clients receive services and supports until the age of 18.
The programs and services offered through the OAP at KidsAbility include Caregiver-Mediated Early Years Programs, Core Clinical Services, the Entry to School Program and Foundational Family Services and Behaviour Supports (purchased services).
Behaviour Support Services
In partnership with the client and their parents or caregivers, experienced clinicians provide services tailored to meet a child’s or youth’s specific needs and goals. Our behaviour supports may be eligible for purchase through the Ontario Autism Program’s (OAP) Core Clinical Services funding and Interim One-Time funding.
Our Behaviour Support Services are separate from the Ministry programs at KidsAbility and do not impact their wait times.
