Entry to School Program

Kinark Autism Services is pleased to be delivering the Entry to School program through the York Simcoe Autism Network (YSAN)

The Entry to School (ETS) program supports children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) between the ages of three and six years old who are entering kindergarten or grade one for the first time.

The program features:

  • a six-month group service focusing on building skills that prepare children to start school;
  • transition supports for children when they begin school; and
  • individualized consultations to support a successful transition for the first six months a child is in school.
