The BC Ministry of Children and Family Development (MCFD) provides Autism Funding to British Columbia families who have a child or youth with an eligible ASD diagnosis. Families can access to $22,000/year for children under age 6 and families can access $6,000/year for children aged 6-18. Children and youth with ASD and other developmental disabilities may also be eligible for other services and supports through MCFD, such as early intervention therapies, school-aged therapies, infant development, supported child development, and family support services, including respite.
