Preparing for a healthcare visit

AIDE Canada
This workbook is designed to help youth and adults on the autism spectrum prepare for a successful visit to a healthcare provider or medical appointment. It includes the following information:
• All About Me (a fillable form designed to be completed ahead of time to provide information during the appointment)
• What to think about before your appointment
• What to do during your appointment
• What to think about after your appointment 


This resource was developed by staff at Autism Ontario, including Danielle Nolan (Social Worker) and Bethany Brewin (Occupational Therapist) who are both part of the “Subject Matter Expert” Team. This resource was designed by Taylor Salisbury, Content and Design Specialist.

Autism Ontario (legally incorporated as Autism Society Ontario) is a charitable organization with a history of over 49 years representing the thousands of people on the autism spectrum and their families across Ontario. Made up of knowledgeable parents, professionals, and autistic self-advocates who can speak to the key issues that impact autistic individuals and their families, Autism Ontario is the province’s leading source of information and referral on autism, and one of the largest collective voices representing the autism community.
