Using Autism Funding to pay for tutoring fees
Tutoring fees can be covered through the Autism Funding Program, through the Ministry of Children and Family Development (MCFD). The goal of autism funding is to help families with the cost of purchasing intervention services. These services will promote their child’s communication, social-emotional, academic and functional life skills development.
Please note all communications with the Autism Funding are done by the families. TTS cannot apply for funding in your place or update rates/extend funding.
How Autism funding at TTS works
For families that have their Autism funding approved
If your child is already funded through the Autism Funding Branch of the Ministry, please request a referral and mention that you have Autism funding in the comments section. We will send you a list of qualified tutors, and then ask you to fill out a Request to pay form to send to the Ministry.
How to apply for Autism funding
Parents interested in getting Autism funding for their children need to visit Autism funding page and follow the necessary steps to apply. We can provide you with a list of teachers so that the tutoring can begin as soon as you have sent in your application to the AFU. You will need to send us a copy of the Request to Pay that you have sent to the Autism Funding Unit.
Direct billing for Autism funding
At TTS, there is no need to pay out of your own pocket when you have Autism funding. We can bill the Autism Funding Unit directly, which eliminates the need for reimbursements and excessive paperwork.
