The guidelines provide operational guidance for autism service providers and set expectations for delivering the program across the province. The OAP Guidelines will continue to evolve as we work with families, clinical experts and stakeholders to improve how the OAP is delivered.


The framework, developed by the Autism Spectrum Disorder Clinical Expert Committee and is used, along with the OAP Guidelines, to guide clinicians who work with families to assess their child’s needs and plan their behavioural services. The framework also helps families understand how their child’s needs are assessed, how behavioural intervention services are planned, how their child’s progress is reviewed, how transition planning is undertaken, and how their family is involved in these processes.
