FINDING Help

A Checklist For Finding
High-Quality Help For a Child with Autism

As the parent of a child with autism, you know how vital it is to find services that make a difference. When you search for autism treatment in Ontario, it can be hard to know which service providers have the skills and experience necessary to help your child succeed. As you look through service options for your child, use this checklist to help you decide which autism service providers will best meet the needs of your child and family.

* Check to see what experience and credentials the treatment provider has, and how long they have been providing the treatment. Choose professionals who have extensive experience with children with autism.
* Research the type of treatment being offered. You want to go with an organization or individual that uses a research-based treatment that has significant evidence demonstrating that it is effective for children with autism. 
* If you are unsure about how to proceed, work with treatment providers that are able to provide a complimentary consultation for you and your child without requiring a commitment to service. Choosing an autism provider is a delicate process, and you'll want to make sure that you feel comfortable and confident about the professionals working at the organization you choose.
