Ask a School Consultant
Parents and caregivers of children and youth with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) may experience challenges with their child’s school placement, helping school staff understand their child’s needs, and understanding the services and supports your school board may offer. Seeing your child struggle with accessing curriculum or thriving in either virtual or in-school placements can be difficult.
Come and chat with a Kinark school consultant and other parents about your experiences, how to effectively advocate for your child, school policies and practices, individualized education plans (IEPs) and effective collaboration, as well as other valuable tips and tools for navigating and interacting with the school system.
Sessions are held virtually through our secure video conferencing platform.

Transition to Adulthood
Kinark’s free Transition to Adulthood sessions help to educate parents and caregivers on the services and supports available once their child turns 18.
These sessions provide participants with various community supports, financial/estate planning and education, and additional information to assist with transition planning. They also share important information about Developmental Services Ontario (DSO) and the Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP).
Bring specific questions to the session about your child’s needs or meet with a member of our Service Navigation team for assistance as a follow up!
Sessions are approximately one hour in length and held virtually through our secure video conferencing platform.
