FINDING Help

A Checklist For Finding
SUPPORT For a Child with Autism

As the parent of a child with autism, you know how important it is to find services that can make a noticeable difference. When you search for autism support 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, 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 service provider has, and how long they have been providing the service to children with autism. Choose professionals who have extensive experience with children with autism.
* Research the type of treatment or support being offered. You want to select an agency or individual that uses a research-based treatment or approach that has evidence demonstrating that it is effective for children with autism. 
* If you are unsure about how to proceed, connect with service providers that provide a complimentary consultation for you and your child without requiring a commitment to service. Choosing a support team is a process, and you'll want to make sure that you feel comfortable and confident about the professionals you choose.
