Talk With Me

These consultation sessions are for parents and caregivers of children/youth with ASD who are registered (or are in the process of registering) with the Ontario Autism Program (OAP).

Parents and caregivers of children and youth with autism often have many questions. We offer free 45-minute sessions with a skilled Family & Community Consultant to talk about any issues, topics, or questions you may have about your child or youth with autism.

Talk with Me provides you with the opportunity to learn strategies to use at home and in the community. You will also learn about resources to help your children and family.

What to Expect

We offer free 45-minute sessions with a skilled Family & Community Consultant to talk about any issues, topics, or questions you may have about your child or youth with autism.

Other families have asked questions such as:

  • how can we get to school on time when our morning is so hectic?
  • how can I help my teenager be more independent with his schedule?
  • how can I help my child make new friends?

These consultations will occur by Zoom platform or by phone. Zoom coordinates will be shared with you prior to your consultation. Zoom requires a computer and data. Please ensure that you have enough data on your home plan that you do not go over and incur extra charges.
