What if I do not have ASD or a formal diagnosis? Can I still get services at The Redpath Centre?

Some individuals who are receiving services from us do not have a diagnosis of autism, but may have a diagnosis that falls within the expertise of our clinicians such as mental health problems, ADD, learning disabilities, or addictions. Although our specialization is ASD, we welcome clients who do not have this diagnosis. If we feel that there is another service provider that is more suitable, we will provide referrals.
