Since 1953, our community has trusted the expertise and experience of the team at Grandview Kids with the well-being and development of their children and youth. We take great pride in our 65+ year history as a family-centred organization, serving the diverse needs of children, youth and their families in Durham Region. Our Purchased Services offerings are separate from the long-standing, historically available programs at Grandview Kids, and in no way impact wait time for those programs, which all continue to run.
Grandview Kids offers a variety of Purchased Services to address a child’s unique needs. These include behavioural services and other clinical services, such as speech-language pathology, occupational therapy and physiotherapy. We look forward to welcoming your family to Grandview Kids. Together, we will explore and discover pathways of possibility for your child and family.
Update – May 5, 2021: Grandview Kids has closed the Purchased Service waitlist and has moved to an open booking system through My Community Hub. Available appointments for Autism Services Caregiver-Mediated Purchased Services will be posted every Monday and booked on a first-come, first-serve basis. Our Foundational Family Services continue to be made available to all families with children registered in the Ontario Autism Program, including our parent/caregiver workshops.
Appointments for the Autism Services Caregiver-Mediated Purchased Services are made available on Mondays through My Community Hub. Before booking, please review our Purchased Services Caregiver Guide, outlining the prices and program offerings for behavioural services and other clinical services.

Purchased Service Offerings
(1) Autism Behavioural Services
Developed with feedback from families, #TeamGrandview is excited to be offering a range of group and 1:1 Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) programs for families with children or youth with a confirmed diagnosis of autism. Every child registered in any of our ABA Programs will receive an individualized assessment with a Board Certified Behaviour Analyst (BCBA). If required, a Speech-Language Pathologist (S-LP) and/or Occupational Therapist (OT) may also participate in the assessment.
Behavioural services utilize the principles of ABA to target a broad range of goals within a number of learning domains, such as behaviour modification, communication, activities of daily living, pre-academic skills and emotional regulation. Our Autism Program team of experienced clinicians works together, and with parent/caregivers, to ensure that the best practices and evidence-based treatments are supporting the child’s autism services journey. Two pathways are available to clients and caregivers:
PATHWAY 1: FOUNDATIONAL APPLIED SKILLS TRAINING (FAST) PROGRAM
Foundational skills across learning domains are targeted in this model, with a focus on primary goal areas, which will be determined during a parent/caregiver interview and child assessment.
PATHWAY 2: MEDIATOR MODEL
In this pathway, parents or caregivers observe and participate in the child’s treatment sessions, and receive training to support the child’s goal attainment through additional practice at home.
(2) Other Clinical Purchased Service Options
In addition to our Behavioural Services, you may wish to purchase Speech-Language Pathology (SLP), Occupational Therapy (OT), or Physiotherapy (PT) services.
SLP: Speech-Language Pathologists (SLPs) and Speech and Language Therapy Assistants (SLTAs) target communication goals, using a variety of evidence-informed techniques and interventions.
OT: Occupational Therapists (OTs) and OT Assistants (OTAs) use a variety of methods to help enable children to improve their ability to participate in and enjoy day-to-day activities.
PT: Physiotherapists (PTs) and PT Assistants (PTAs) support gross motor skill development.
