Fees & Payment Options
The Centre for Behavioural Studies is part of St. Lawrence College and is therefore is a not-for-profit organization - we do not receive core funding to deliver behaviour therapies. As such, we charge fees for therapies and services delivered to the general public.
Clients enter into a service agreement with the Centre and are required to pay for services at the time of, or shortly after service delivery. Some of the services we provide are covered by private health insurance plans and are eligible for reimbursement through your insurer. As well, some families pay for our services with funds made available through the Ontario Autism Program or Special Services at Home (SSAH).
Our cost for a Behaviour Assessment with a Behaviour Therapist and Clinical Supervisor, and for individual interventions with a Behaviour Therapist is $60 per hour. Clients receiving ABA therapy will be charged an additional half-hour per session to account for the preparation before each session along with the data recording following the appointment. In cases where the Therapist or Clinical Supervisor is required to travel outside of the Kingston for an appointment, mileage will be charged along with travel time. For appointments within Kingston, only travel time, and not mileage will be charged.
Clients accessing therapy from a Registered Psychotherapist at the Centre will be charged at a rate of $100 per/hr.
You may also be eligible for funding through an Ontario Government funded program such as:
Determining eligibility for such programs is the responsibility of the client/parent/caregiver.
