Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Clinic
ATC provides specialized services to the Elkie Adler MS Program at Baycrest, combining medical and rehabilitation management with leading edge assistive technology in the areas of mobility aids, communication, advanced computer technology to control environments, specialized seating, and help with home modifications to improve the quality of life for people with Multiple Sclerosis.
The clinic is staffed with an inter-professional team of physicians, nurses, rehabilitation personnel, social services and a technical team who devises switches and voice/head control interfaces with computers that allow patients to manage their chairs and home environment and to communicate with others.
The clinic also offers speech pathology for swallowing disorders, kinesiology, a gait lab to improve mobility and coordinators who liaise with community care access.
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 MS 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!

Clinical training and home modifications
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.
