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.
