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.
A physician’s referral is required; patients are accepted on a case-by-case basis at any point in the continuum of care.
Portions of our ALS Clinic’s services are subsidized through grants. In addition, some equipment costs may be covered by provincial funding programs. 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!
Improve patient functional abilities
Enable independent living
Restore environmental control
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, ATC has had to limit the number of referrals we can see. Consequently, we can only accommodate our internally referred patients and will not be accepting any community referrals for our Seating and AAC clinics at this time.
We will continue to see our existing ALS, stroke, MS and PD patients and internal referrals for these diagnoses in Seating and AAC clinic.
Thank you for your understanding.
