Ontario Autism Program

Dear Parents/Guardians,

As of March 17th, 2020, Community Living North Halton’s Ontario Autism Program has paused in person services and supports until further notice due to the COVID-19 state of emergency. In person services will be paused until further notice. At this time, the CLNH OAP team has offered Telehealth Services (remote sessions) to in service clients. If you are in service with CLNH’s OAP team or wish to purchase a Fee for Service Package, please refer to the Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services’ website for the most up to date details regarding the OAP and COVID-19 related updates including an extension to the amount of time you have to spend your childhood budget funding and submit your expense form by up to six months, if necessary. You now have up to 18 months to spend your childhood budget and submit your expense form. https://www.ontario.ca/page/ontario-autism-program.

We will inform our in service families and the public as soon as in person services are set to resume. If you are interested in purchasing a Fee For Service Package at Community Living North Halton or have any questions, please contact oap@clnh.on.ca. Services to purchase include Evidence-Based Behavioural Services and Additional Behavioural Services as outlined in Eligible Services and Supports.

Thank you from the Community North Halton Ontario Autism Program Team.
