Autism Services

Contact Brant can assist children and youth with Autism to access the services and resources you need.

Contact Brant as the Access Mechanism and Lead Coordinating Agency can assist all children and youth with Autism Spectrum Disorder to access appropriate services and resources.   Contact Brant is the Lead Agency for the Urgent Response Service (URS) in the communities of Brant, Haldimand-Norfolk, Hamilton, Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, Niagara, and Six Nations of the Grand River.  Children and youth registered with the Ontario Autism Program are eligible for URS when experiencing new or worsening high-risk behaviours. Working with the family and community services, our URS Coordinators develop short-term services and supports to respond rapidly to the specific high-risk need to reduce the risk of harm to the child/youth, others, or property.

Please share our URS bookmark in English and French.

Please print or share this one page document about what URS is and what to expect while receiving services.  Available in 5 different languages. English, French, Arabic, Spanish, and Urdu.
