Welcome to Emerging Minds!

Emerging Minds is an interdisciplinary team with a focus on helping individuals of all ages with autism.

Unfortunately, at this time, our waitlists for our assessment, behaviour intervention and behaviour consultation services are so extensive that we have temporarily closed the waitlists to new clients.  We will be re-evaluating the situation in 2019 to see if we can reopen the waitlists at that time.

If your child is under 5 years old and requires an assessment, please contact Jennifer Mackintosh at 613-883-3716. 

Our speech therapists, occupational therapists, parent coaches, dietician and social worker are still accepting clients on their waitlists.  Please contact them directly if you are interested in services.

We realize this is disappointing news.  We have assembled a list of alternate service providers in the Ottawa area.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
