Foundational Family Services
The Ministry has recently added a new service that provides support and increases parent and caregiver’s capacity for families registered for the Ontario Autism Program. This service will provide parent training and help parents/caregivers to build their own skills in helping their child on an ongoing basis. These services will be provided at no charge to OAP families.
We at Grandview, feel that as a parent or caregiver, you are your child’s first and most essential teacher; so we have added a series of parent/caregiver workshops on various topics that can be accessed by registering on My Community Hub. These services will continue to transform to meet our family’s needs to ensure support as the Ministry’s new OAP is created. Stay tuned for new and exciting changes!
