ACSP2 (1)

For this program, the following is taken into consideration for review:

  • Individuals that are without a full time day program and are in receipt of Passport Funding.
  • Individuals who are transitioning out of school and/or are over the age of 18.
  • Or families who wish to pay privately, a low per diem rate will apply.

ACSP is a private agency that provides a fee for service.  ACSP was founded by Susanne Craig, in May of 2013 after numerous families expressed a lack of programming for their son/daughter and how this would impact their current family situation. The goal was to fill the gap in services to provide families with alternative programming after their son/daughter graduated from highschool.

ACSP is currently accepting applications for the waitlist and unfortunately is at full capacity. In future, the hope is to expand services within the Hamilton-Wentworth and surrounding area’s. Prioritizing individuals who are graduating from highschool and who are without a day program. Individualized Passport Funding is the only available financial resource in covering our operational costs.

Hours of Operation: Monday to Friday 9:00 am – 3:00 pm

458 King Street W., Hamilton, ON L8P 1H2
