Autism Ontario 2019 One to One Summer Support Worker Reimbursement Fund

Need support so your child with ASD can go to Summer Camp?

 

The 2019 One-to-One Summer Support Worker Reimbursement Fund is available to Ontario families of children or youth with ASD who retain the services of a one-to-one support worker for their child to attend a community summer camp or summer program.  Maximum reimbursements of $600, per child or youth, (up to 18th birthday) will be made to subsidize services purchased between June 24 and August 30, 2019. 

 

A minimum of 500 families from across Ontario are expected to receive reimbursements. Reimbursements will be provided based on a random selection made from all eligible applicants who apply between May 6 and May 31, 2019.

 

Process

  1. Application:  Completed and signed applications will be accepted from May 7 to May 31, 2019. Your application must include evidence of a clear ASD diagnosis from a professional who is qualified to make the diagnosis (see website for details).
  2. Selection: By June 7, 2019, 500 families will be randomly selected and ALL applicants will be informed by letter whether they were selected to receive funds or not.
  3. Payment: Autism Ontario will issue cheques to the randomly selected families who have submitted (by no later than September 13, 2019) all original receipt(s) for fees paid by the parent of the child with ASD for the child’s one-to-one worker.

Note: Membership in Autism Ontario is not required to access the Fund.
