OAP – Foundational Family Services

Foundational Family Services

The new needs-based Ontario Autism Program (OAP) includes a broad range of services that offer more supports designed to meet the individual needs of your family and child or youth.  Foundational Family Services include a range of evidence-based services aimed to provide families with tools to support their child or youth and to participate in their ongoing learning and development. 

They may include:

  • Transition Supports
  • Family Resource and Clinic Days

Foundational Family Services are available to all families registered in the OAP and are offered at no cost.
