Autism Services

Kinark has provided services to children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and their families for almost 20 years, providing services to thousands of children and their families, and we will continue to offer high quality, evidenced-based autism services come April 1st.

In response to the government announced changes to the OAP, Kinark is developing a range of behavioural services and supports to meet the individualized needs of children and youth with autism to be available for purchase by families commencing in April. These will include assessment, individual and group based behavioural services for children with autism, as well as consultation and training for families and caregivers.
