Foundational Family Services for Ontario Autism Program (OAP) - Aug 4/20

Proud to be play an important role in the announcement today by my colleague, Todd Smith/Minister of Children, Community and Social Services , who announced our government is providing families in the Ontario Autism Program (OAP) with services to support their child’s ongoing learning and development. Foundational family services such as family and peer mentoring, caregiver workshops and coaching will be tailored to the unique regional and cultural needs in different communities. The first phase of foundational family services is launching August 7.

This is an exciting step toward the ongoing implementation of the new needs-based, sustainable and family-centred Ontario Autism Program that will see more children receiving support than ever before in Ontario.
