The Ontario Autism Program provides services and support for children with autism. Childhood budgets provide families money to purchase services and support for their children. For example, you can use your childhood budgets to purchase occupational therapy services.

Are you looking for occupational therapy services?

We understand it can be overwhelming to find the right services for you or your family member. The College can help you learn about what occupational therapists do and the types of clients they work with. We can provide information to help you find an occupational therapist in your area and confirm that the occupational therapist is licensed to practice.

The role of the College is to protect the public by making sure occupational therapists are competent, ethical and accountable. Our public register provides up-to-date information about every occupational therapist who is, or was ever, licensed in Ontario
