Between Friends Kelowna » Find Professionals

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.

Tip: You will want to use the “Select Category” drop down menu below to narrow down your search, or you can use the Search box.

Please note: If you encounter any listing that is out of date, we would love to know about it. Please contact us.  Also if you know about a professional not yet listed in our database, you can add a listing to our directory here.
