At ACT we will work with you to identify the funding sources available to you.
Ontario Autism Program
There have recently been several changes as the Ontario Government rolls out the new Ontario Autism Program. We encourage you to visit the following websites to find out more information:
The administrator of the Ontario Autism Program is now AccessOAP.
ACT provides ABA, SLP, OT and Mental Health services and all of our services are eligible under the Ontario Autism Program.
Third Party Insurance
Rehabilitation services are often included in benefit packages. If your family is enrolled in an employer’s benefit package, you may have coverage for psychology, speech language pathology, Applied Behavioral Analysis therapy and occupational therapy services. If you require information about accessing services, please contact a team member from ACT for assistance.
For military families it will be important for you to contact Human Resources and/or your Commanding Officer to determine the funding available to you. You may also wish to apply to the Support Our Troops fund.
For questions regarding military funding, you can contact the Military Family Resource Centre – National Capital Region at firstname.lastname@example.org, by telephone at 613-998-7438, or by fax at 613-998-9585.

Jordan’s Principle makes sure all First Nations children living in Canada can access the products, services and supports they need, when they need them. Funding can help with a wide range of health, social and educational needs, including the unique needs that First Nations Two-Spirit and LGBTQQIA children and youth and those with disabilities may have.
