Why register your child in the Ontario Autism Program?
By registering your child or youth with ASD in the Ontario Autism Program (OAP), your family can benefit as it provides access to a variety of fully funded supports and services for children and youth, their caregivers and other family members.
These funded supports include Foundational Family Services, such as parent and caregiver education workshops, service navigation, brief behavioural consultations and transition support. Eligible families enrolled in the OAP may also participate in caregiver-mediated early years (CMEY) programs, which allows caregivers and their child to learn new skills and meet individual goals.
As the OAP continues to develop, families may be eligible to access additional funded services and funding to receive core clinical services, including Applied Behaviour Analysis services, Speech and Language Pathology services, Occupational Therapy and mental health support.
