Ontario Autism Program

Dear Parents/Guardians,

On February 6th, 2019, the Ministry of Children Community and Social Services announced changes to the Ontario Autism Program which as a result, will turn regional providers like Community Living North Halton into Fee For Service Agencies as of April 1st, 2019.

Community Living North Halton has been supporting individuals since 1955 and became a community partner in the Central West Region in 2011 during the inception of the ABA program.

Community Living North Halton remains committed to providing high quality Evidence Based Behavioural Services (EBBS) to children and youth with Autism Spectrum Disorder on a Fee For Service basis. Following the ministry’s announcements, we are currently preparing our services and supports. All services are eligible to purchase with your Childhood Budget through the Ontario Autism Program Supports will include but are not limited to:

EBBS including:

  • Behavioural assessment
  • 1:1 and group behavioural intervention sessions
  • Parent/Caregiver training

Other services to be provided include:

  • 1:1 Curriculum Based sessions
  • Parent/Caregiver supports and training

Services will be provided by a clinical team which includes a Board Certified Behaviour Analyst (Clinical Supervisor), Behaviour Therapists and Behaviour Therapist Assistants.
To participate in our complimentary service planning, please email us at oap@clnh.on.ca. We will meet with you to learn more about your child and understand what your goals are. We can then present to you an individualized service recommendation without obligation.

We look forward to continuing to support children and youth in the Central West Region.
