Hi all and @eithan203 @kunu24 @Nabeel37
Hi Ln2000,Hi all and @eithan203 @kunu24 @Nabeel37
My son (almost 4 years old) has Autism level II (moderate, non-verbal). He receives ABA (Behavioural therapy) therapy since November 2020. The therapy is expensive and I am worried if it is included in the costs our application for the PR would be rejected. I've read both that it is not included but also that is included. Can someone please help me gain clarity?
I am particularly worried because my son is ASD level II non-verbal and most of the cases in the chat are high-functional children.
Your help is very much appreciated.
Hi Rudra2013,Hi @eithan203,
As I am a CEC candidate we did our medical on 19th Feb, 2021 and I told to the Dr that my son has mild autism and we provided his normal school progress report. The Doctor told the school report is fine. Will CIC officer ask for any other report. As we came from India long back like 2 years ago, we had assessment report from India not here in Canada. Currently we are staying here in Toronto Canada for last 2 years. Any advise will be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
I don’t think they will ask for anything since autism is no longer an excessive demand.
All autism treatments are excluded from the cost of the excessive demand.
Only thing to do is waiting.
I understand that you did you medicals on February but I think it went for a review only on July.
If you have a GCMS notes you will probably see.
Unfortunately it will not benefit any family with autism dependent.Hi , Below is the link for the latest news on relaxing medical inadmissibility
Also , a mail id is given at the end of the article (IRCC.MHBDGO-BDGDGMS.IRCC@cic.gc.ca ) to submit commentary on the proposed regulatory change .
Please all do the needful .
