Foundational Family Services

What are Foundational Family Services?

Foundational Family Services are offered to support all families who are registered in the Ontario Autism Program (OAP) to ensure that families are supported in ways that are meaningful to their child and family.

Foundational Family Services is the first phase of the new needs-based OAP. Services are available free of charge on an ongoing basis and as family’s needs change over time.

Foundational Family Services are provided by our clinical team which is comprised of Applied Behavioural Analysis (ABA) Therapists, Senior Therapists and BCBA Clinical Supervisors.

Are Foundational Services right for your family?

Families registered* in the OAP may register for Foundational Family Services offered by Woodview’s Halton Autism Services team which includes: 

  • workshops (with follow ups, if applicable)
  • clinic appointments

What is the focus of Family Foundational Services?
  • Workshops: Workshops on a variety of topics will be offered monthly with pre-registration required.
