Intake Service

play timeThe objective of this service is to provide parents with an understanding of their child’s disorder and facilitate the development of a Service Plan for families who reside in Toronto that focuses on the needs of their child and the priorities of their family.

Central to this process is the opportunity to normalize some of their reactions to the shock of learning about their child’s difficulties, reassuring them that there are other parents who have experienced the same reactions and that there are positive steps they can take to address their child’s developmental needs.

Through phone and face to face contacts, a parent orientation session and written reports, parents are supported in their efforts to regain balance in their life and in parenting a child with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
