Caregivers can register for a one-hour clinical consultation with a multidisciplinary team including a Board-Certified Behaviour Analyst, Psychologist/Psychological Associate, and Speech Language Pathologist who have experience working with children and youth with ASD and their caregivers. The team will work in collaboration with caregivers to review their child’s strengths and needs across skill domains, to identify and prioritize specific goals, and to learn about evidence-based approaches to meet these goals for their child. Caregivers will be asked to complete a background form prior to the consultation to help the team become more familiar with their child and family.
