As a training site, we provide services at a lower cost.
The Child and Youth Development Clinic (CYDC) provides high-quality, affordable interdisciplinary psychological and speech and language assessment, and intervention and treatment services, to children and youth from three to 18 years of age.
As the CYDC is a cost neutral clinic, we are dependent on our service fees to cover our operating expenses. Service fees also provide an opportunity to offer a sliding scale fee to our community and families based on financial need and personal financial circumstances. At the CYDC, our goal is to work collaboratively with our families to determine a fee schedule that meets the needs of the clinic and each family.
Clinic services are not covered by the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP). However, clients with extended (supplemental) health care plans or clients receiving Workplace Safety Insurance Board (WSIB) benefits may have partial or full coverage. Clients are encouraged to check with their benefit plan(s) for coverage. It is the client’s responsibility to pay for services and to forward all receipts for reimbursement to the insurance company directly.
While the recommended rates from both the Ontario Psychological Association and the Ontario Association of Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists (OSLA) for services is higher than our fee schedule, as a training site, we provide services at a lower cost.
