OAP Information 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. We provide workshops, training sessions and individual direct support.

 

OAP Information Sessions:

OAP Orientation: Do you have questions about the new Ontario Autism Program? Autism Ontario can help answer your questions and support you in navigating the changes in the system. At this workshop, you will learn what these changes are, how they affect you and your family, and what a Childhood Budget is. You’ll also get to know Autism Ontario and their new Service Navigation program, designed to help families navigate the OAP and Childhood Budget, find qualified providers, learn about the autism supports and services in your region, and have opportunities to connect with other local families to share knowledge, provide support, and build community.

OAP Childhood Budget: Do you have questions about the OAP Childhood Budget process? Have you received a Childhood Budget form? Autism Ontario’s network of Service Navigators is designed to ensure families don’t have to navigate alone. At this workshop, Service Navigators will provide a step-by-step guide to the Childhood Budget, including how to understand and fill out your Childhood Budget form. This workshop is available to all parents and caregivers, and is designed to empower them with information. Whether your child is registered for the Ontario Autism Program or not, whether you are waiting for a Childhood Budget or your child is currently receiving behavioural services, this Childhood Budget workshop will walk you through what each section means for you and your family.

Interim One Time Funding Sessions: Do you have questions about the Interim One Time Funding process? Have you received an Interim One Time Funding form? Do you have questions about eligible expenses? Autism Ontario’s network of Service Navigators is designed to ensure families don’t have to navigate alone. This workshop is available to all parents and caregivers, and is designed to empower you with information. Whether your child is registered for the Ontario Autism Program, or waiting for Interim One Time Funding, this workshop will cover what you need to know.

In addition to the Information Sessions, our Service Navigators are also running Drop-in Sessions to support families in completing their OAP paperwork.
