Kinark has worked with children and youth with Autism Spectrum Disorder and their families for many years across southern and central Ontario. We are proud of our 20 year history of providing high quality, evidenced-based services to thousands of children and their families and offering respite camps for both children with ASD and family groups.
Kinark is now providing a new range of fee-for-service services for children, youth and families that are designed to meet your child’s unique needs and help them be successful. We are committed to working with our clients and their families to help you make decisions about purchasing services that will meet the needs of your child and family.
Our team of skilled clinicians deliver caring, responsive and family centred Applied Behavioural Analytic (ABA) treatment individualized to meet the unique strengths and needs of each child and youth with ASD and include Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBA). Our school support staff have helped thousands of children transition effectively into school. Our family service navigators know how challenging it can be for you to find and access supports and services your family needs and they can help you make the connections that will work for you.
