Newly Diagnosed with ASD

If your child or youth has recently received an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) diagnosis, this section can help you determine what services and supports may be best suited for your child’s needs.

We understand a diagnosis of ASD can be overwhelming and the information may feel difficult to navigate. 

Our team is here to help! At Kinark Autism Services, we can help your family with the first steps and help you find resources and supports in your community. We provide many services that can help you better understand your child’s needs and support you when choosing appropriate interventions. 

We also offer a large range of evidence-based training and information sessions, as well as support groups to help you feel better informed and equipped in taking the steps helpful for your family.
