Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) Clinic

The ATC ALS Clinic offers specialized outpatient services for adults who have been diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS).

Working closely together with the medical team of the Sunnybrook neuromuscular clinic, treatment focuses on improving the clients’ functional abilities so that they can live as independently as possible.

The program offers Occupational Therapy, Speech and Language Pathology, Registered Dietitian Services as well as leading-edge assistive technology in the areas of mobility, communication, and advanced computer technology to control environments.

The fees we charge to our patients are subject to change, depending on the grants and financial assistance available to us. Please don't hesitate to contact us for the latest information!
