Need Support For Your Child with ASD* During March Break?
The 2021 March Break Reimbursement Fund is available to Ontario families of children or youth with ASD who retain the services of a one-to-one support worker OR who have paid for their child to attend a 2021 March Break camp or program, but not both.
Maximum reimbursements of $350 per child or youth (up to 18th birthday) will be made to subsidize services purchased between April 12-16, 2021.
A minimum of 1,007 families, from across Ontario, are expected to receive reimbursements. Reimbursements will be provided based on a random selection made from all eligible applicants who apply between December 15, 2020 and January 22, 2021.
- Application: We will accept completed and signed applications from December 15, 2020 to January 22, 2021. Your application must include evidence of a clear ASD diagnosis from a professional who is qualified to make the diagnosis (see website for details).
- Selection: By January 31, 2021, 1,007 families will be randomly selected and ALL applicants will be informed by email whether they were selected to receive funds or not.
- Payment: Autism Ontario will issue cheques to the randomly selected families who have submitted (by no later than April 30, 2021) all original receipt(s) for fees paid by the parent of the child with ASD.
Note: Membership in Autism Ontario is not required to access the Fund.
