Autism Consultation Services: Individual and Group Sessions
Raising a child with ASD presents a unique experience that requires specialized knowledge and training to ensure you are prepared for the many variables in their lives. Autism consultation services have been designed to meet the diverse needs of children with autism and to support families navigating the recent changes to Ontario Autism Program. At the Core Centre, we offer 1:1 and group meetings for parents and caregivers.
The main goal of the assessment is to identify child’s areas of strengths and weakness. The results from the assessment assist in developing the right programming for your child.
