CHANGES TO THE ONTARIO AUTISM PROGRAM
On February 6, 2019 the Ontario government announced significant
changes to the Ontario Autism Program. Many of the changes will start on
April 1, 2019 and impact how autism services are provided by Lansdowne
in the future.
This announcement will result in changes to the autism services that
Lansdowne currently provides. We will be moving to a system where
Lansdowne no longer receives direct ministry funding.
Lansdowne will only operate on a fee-for-service model with families
choosing the services they wish to purchase with their new childhood
budgets. Lansdowne is actively exploring the types of services we will be
able to offer.
The most up to date information for families is always available on the
Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services (MCCSS) website.
Please check this page regularly for new information. Find up to date
information by searching ‘Ontario Autism Program’ or click on:
We recognize these are unsettling times, however please be assured
Lansdowne is focused on supporting our children and youth, families and
employees through these changes while we explore and plan the types of
services we can offer in the future.
