Foundational Family Services

DCAFS is excited to continue its journey in supporting children with autism and their families. In line with the Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services’ recent OAP announcement we are launching our Foundational Family Service. As a multi-service agency, we continue to grow our supports while families wait for specific treatment. Over time we plan to expand the range of Foundational Services. Effective immediately, the following supports and services are available for families who are registered with the Ontario Autism Program (OAP):


  • Brief Consultation: A roster of specialists including Behaviour Specialists are available for phone or virtual consultation on a range of issues including:
    Questions about Autism
    Questions about What is ABA
    Where to start while I wait for treatment
    Managing challenging behaviours
    A range of other questions, worries or concerns parents/caregivers may wish to discuss

Consultations can be booked through the Parenting Support On-Line Portal on our home page or by calling our Central Intake number at 519-941-1530.
