Get a diagnostic assessment

Last updated on August 23, 2021

If your child demonstrates signs of autism, ask your doctor for a referral for an assessment.

An assessment will allow you to better understand your child's needs. If you don't receive a diagnosis of autism, you may still be eligible for MCFD supports. If the result of the diagnosis is autism, you will be eligible to apply for autism funding.
