The Registry of Autism Service Providers (RASP) is an online search listing of private practice professionals who families can access to find services for their child.
To be included, professionals must meet education, training and experience requirements which demonstrate that they are qualified to provide effective treatment programs for children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD).
We strongly recommend that families with children of all ages choose their professional service providers from those listed on the RASP.
There are four categories of professionals listed on the RASP:
- Behaviour Analysts/Consultants
- Speech-Language Pathologists
- Occupational Therapists, and
- Physical Therapists.
Behaviour Interventionists are not listed on the RASP. If you hire an Behaviour Interventionist the individual should be supervised by a RASP approved professional.
