Are you looking for specific professionals to work with your child? In order to access autism funding for children under six, parents must employ professionals who are on the Registry of Autism Service Providers (RASP). Search the RASP here. For children over 6 (and for all other professionals that may or may not be listed in the RASP), we hope that our Professionals Directory (below) will help you find who you are looking for.

All services for the individuals Kindale serves begin with the creation of a comprehensive and person centred service plan that clearly identifies each person’s needs, goals and dreams – and the steps required to meet them. Once this plan is in place, Kindale’s staff do their best to ensure that the needed supports, services and opportunities are provided. If Kindale is unable to meet all an individuals’ needs or goals, we will do our best to draw in resources or make referrals to others who can help.
