Autism Spectrum Disorder

 

The Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) Program began in Sun Country Health Region in 2009.  The program provides an Autism Spectrum Disorder Consultant, one Social Worker, and two ASD Support Workers. 

Support can be provided to families, clients, school teams, etc. regarding any person suspected of having an ASD as well as those who have already received a diagnosis between the ages of 0-19. 

Support comes in many forms such as direct treatment, referrals for diagnostic testing, assistance with programming, behavior modification, dietary support, referrals to other agencies.

Referrals to the program come from a variety of sources. These may include parents, schools, speech-language pathologist, psychologist, public health, or physicians.  In order for an agency to refer to the program parental permission must be obtained.   

For more information please contact Sun Country Health Region at 306-842-8665.
