Autism Intervention Program (AIP)

PLEASE NOTE: Programs are under construction as we transition to the new Ontario Autism Program (OAP). Please see the Ministry of Children Community & Social Services (MCCSS) website for the most up to date information.


March 6, 2019



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.
