Third Party Funding

Autism Funding

Autism Funding

Funding assists with the cost of getting support. Autism funding helps pay for eligible services or supports that promote skill development for children living with autism.

Funding helps families pay for services that promote skill development for their child – communication, social-emotional, academic and life skills. Once approved, we direct bill and allocate funds to your chosen services within the Clinic based off the funding you receive. We will let you know when your funding is low so you can re-apply in time to continue your sessions.

Children aged 6 to 18
