Ontario Autism Program – Autism Ontario East Region – Service Navigation Update!

 Office Hours

As you know, Autism Ontario does not have an office space in the region. I have been working with a few local organizations to book office space when families request in-person meetings. I also have been meeting families at their local libraries when necessary.

For the next few months, CHEO has offered Autism Ontario some office space to help accommodate the high demand of in-person meetings that I have been receiving. These office hours will be by appointment only.

  • Mondays – 9:00am-2:00pm – CHEO Kanata – 109-1002 Beaverbrook Road
  • Wednesdays – 9:00am-2:00pm – CHEO St-Laurent – 2280 St-Laurent Boulevard, Suite 103

*Please note that Autism Ontario does not endorse one service provider over another. I do make this very clear to families when I am asked about local services. We do value our local partnerships and I would certainly be open to work with any agency or organization who is interested in collaborating on workshops, information sessions, office hours, or Social Learning Opportunities.*

 Upcoming Events

I have also partnered with CHEO and Service Coordination to facilitate information sessions for families with a new diagnosis. If you are supporting families with a new diagnosis who would benefit from an information session, you can direct them to the Access Team at CHEO: https://www.cheo.on.ca/en/clinics-services-programs/access-team.aspx

Our next round of Social Learning Opportunity Submission is February 1st! If you have any suggestions for events or workshops that you would like for us to run, please feel free to let me know! You can also complete the attached SLO Form if you are interested in partnering on something.
