SAAAC WALK-IN CLINIC
The South Asian Autism Awareness Centre (SAAAC) will be piloting a project that looks to speed up the process of receiving a diagnosis, so that families can receive services for their child earlier. The project is proudly supported by Autism Speaks Canada and Computek College.
What Is the Purpose of the Walk-in Clinic?
Research has shown that immigrant families receive delayed ASD diagnoses and interventions. The goal of the clinic is to increase access for families that are not already on a path to a diagnosis and early intervention. This program is aimed at intervening at the earliest possible time- especially for those parents who may have some concerns that there may be developmental issues with their child.
Who Is Eligible to Participate?
Children between the ages of 1 and 5 who do not have an ASD diagnosis
What Can I Expect?
The Walk-In Clinic will take place one weekend a month and include a three- step triage process:
(i) Initial intake
(ii) Assessment by team of ABA, SLP and Family Physician
(iii) Assessment by Developmental Pediatrician
Ultimately, this clinic will not only be a place to have questions answered but a teaching venue for parents so that they can understand the road ahead if an ASD diagnosis is actually made.
Only 12 spots available.
