ATC provides specialized services to the North and East-GTA (NE-GTA) Stroke Network at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre.
Working closely together with the inter-professional teams of the NE-GTA Stroke Network, and the Sunnybrook Secondary Stroke Prevention Clinic, treatment focuses on improving clients’ functional abilities so that they can live as independently as possible.
The Stroke Clinic offers consultative outpatient Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy, Speech and Language Pathology, Registered Dietitian Services, as well as, leading edge assistive technology in the areas of mobility aids, communication, advanced computer technology, specialized seating and help with home modifications to improve the quality of life for people who have suffered from a debilitating stroke.
The assessment and treatment of our stroke patients is conducted at the Sunnybrook site free of charge.
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 Stroke 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 functional abilities following stroke
Rebuild mobility, communication and autonomy
Outpatient program designed for independent living
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.
