Get Involved

Autism Ontario is currently offering a variety of online events, support groups and webinars for the whole family. Whether you’re interested in learning, connecting with others, or just want to have fun, we’ve got something for everyone!

Please note: We encourage families to register for the webinars and support groups that work (time and topic) for them, and not to be restricted by the region or city listed on the registration. During online groups, the speaker will specify at the beginning of the group if some of the information will be region specific.

Events - Virtual and Home Based

We have something for everyone! We are working with local businesses and shops to provide take home kits – from ceramic painting to birdhouse making, there are lots of choices. 

Webinars

Autism Ontario webinars are designed to be an interactive, easy-to-understand, resource for parents, professionals, educators, and people on the autism spectrum.. Webinars are presented in either English or French, by subject matter experts, in a discussion-based format. We have plenty of past webinars available online and more webinars on the way. 

Online Support Groups

Looking for a way to connect with other families? Join Autism Ontario Service Navigators and other family members in an online support group. These groups provide an opportunity to come together, learn and share similar life and learning experiences. 

Virtual OAP Information and Expense Reconciliation Sessions

Autism Ontario offers support to all families interested in accessing the Ontario Autism Program (OAP), currently registered in the program and waiting for a Childhood Budget or Interim One Time Funding or families currently receiving services. These workshops - now online! -  are designed to empower parents and caregivers with information. 

Service Navigation Program - Connect One on One with Our Team

Our Service Navigators are here to provide information about the Ontario Autism Program and help connect families to service providers and resources available in their local communities. This will include programs, services and resources that families can purchase with their Childhood Budgets and Interim One Time Funding, as well as other services and supports available locally.
