Foundational Family Services

Foundational Family Services offer a variety of tailored service options free of charge to families registered with the Ontario Autism Program.

Brief Targeted Consultation

Brief Targeted Consultations are provided by a member of our Autism and Behaviour Team. Therapists will work with your family to address one specific goal in a time sensitive manner. This service is not to address challenging behaviours or self-injurious behaviours.

Transitional Supports

Transitional supports provide access to a variety of resources to assist in preparation of any upcoming transitions. Transitions big or small, sometimes require a little bit of extra support. Family Support staff are available to assist with any implementation challenges.

Family Resource Clinics

Family Resource clinic days are designed to be a ‘one stop shop’ in beginning your Autism Services Journey. Our team can support in accessing information, funding, navigating available services and development of antecedent strategies.

Seminars and Workshops

A series of pre-recorded seminars available on an as needed basis. Various topics cover subjects across all developmental domains as well as serve as an introduction to Autism and Behaviour Services. Access to a Therapist for individual follow up coaching sessions available upon request.

Individual and group workshops are also available in a live or virtual setting. Workshops and seminars cover topics such as; Introduction to Autism Spectrum Disorder, Introduction to Applied Behaviour Analysis, Challenging Behaviour, Toileting, Sexuality and many more.


Support Strategies for Students who Require Additional Adaptive Functioning Support – Caregiver Workshops and Coaching

Success looks different for everyone. A child who is enrolled in the transition to school program, but who is perhaps not as academically prepared or developmentally at the same level as peers can still benefit from this program.
