The caregiver-child relationship is a life-long journey of learning and discovery, especially for caregivers raising a child with autism. Access to quality and timely information is critical for families to support their children and youth to reach their full potential.
Foundational Family Services offer a wide range of evidence-based support provided in various formats to build family capacity to support their child’s ongoing learning and development. They may include:
- Family and peer mentoring
- Caregiver workshops and follow-up coaching sessions
- Brief targeted consultation
- Transition supports
- Family resource and clinic days
Foundational Family Services are available to all families registered with the Ontario Autism Program (OAP) at no cost.
