Our Mission: Helping children and youth with complex needs achieve better outcomes.
Kinark has worked with children and youth with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) 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 youth and their families. We offer respite camps for both children with autism and family groups.
Kinark is now providing a variety of universally accessible foundational family services free of charge for children and youth with autism, and complementary programs available for siblings, parents and caregivers. Kinark also offers a range of services for purchase 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, including Board Certified Behaviour Analysts (BCBA), deliver caring, responsive and family centred Applied Behavioural Analysis (ABA) services individualized to meet the unique strengths and needs of each child and youth with ASD. 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.
