Strides Toronto has been providing evidence-based interventions for children and youth with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) for nearly 20 years. As a trusted agency in Toronto, a high degree of interprofessional partnership is in place to support information sharing and collaboration among services and the community. We are proud of the high-quality, evidence-based services our staff provide to children and youth with ASD and their families. Our service offerings are flexible and consider individual needs. Individualized intake assessments are completed to help determine a plan for service. Behavioural interventions and family services are integrated and coordinated with other services (e.g., speech and language therapy, mental health) which a child or youth and their family may be receiving. The wide range of services available to children, youth and their families are frequently evaluated and monitored to be flexible and responsive to changing evidence and practice.
Family-centred care is the fundamental basis of service delivery within Strides Toronto’s Autism Services. This approach values parents and caregivers as experts on their child and as key decision makers in their child’s interventions. It also recognizes their lifelong commitment to their child’s learning and wellness.
Strides Toronto is pleased to be offering Foundational Family Services. Foundational Family Services is a part of the new needs-based Ontario Autism Program (OAP), designed to provide families and caregivers a range of evidence-based services to support their children’s learning and development. All families registered in the OAP are eligible to receive these services and supports at no cost.
The Autism Program at Strides Toronto is currently offering a variety of virtual services and resources to support families while staying safe at home.
