Out of Province - Qualified Service Provider List for Children Under Six (QSPL)

Important information for parents and service providers
  • This is an interim list of professionals that ACT - Autism Community Training inherited in December 2004 from a previous service provider. Parents of children under six can only be reimbursed for their therapy expenses if a professional is on the Qualified Service Provider List (QSPL). ACT is working to update the QSPL. We have tried to contact each professional on this list - most entries have been updated and we will continue to revise.

  • Next we must verify that each individual on this list meets the requirements of the Ministry for Children and Family Development (MCFD) for inclusion. Professionals on this list prior to April 2003 were not informed that MCFD had increased requirements for QSPL inclusion. Significant steps must be taken by ACT before families can have confidence that every provider on this list fulfills the requirements for inclusion on the QSPL, as set out by the MCFD in their Service Provider Referral Form, updated in April 2003: www.mcf.gov.bc.ca/autism/forms.htm.


Criminal Record Checks

  • Criminal Record Checks (CRC) and documentation of professional qualification for the professionals now included in the QSPL are not on file with ACT in the majority of cases. Be assured that collecting information on CRC and documentation of qualifications is a priority for ACT as families must rely on the QSPL in order to be reimbursed.

  • (CRC) after a name indicates that there is a CRC on file with ACT as of December 31, 2004; by February 1, 2005, all professionals on this list will be expected to have provided documentation that they have applied for a CRC, or they will be removed from the QSPL.


Qualifications

  • ACT is mailing out information to each professional on the QSPL in the first week of January requesting documentation of their qualifications as required by MCFD and providing information on how to request a CRC be sent to ACT. Any professional who does not received this information or who wishes to correct the contact information on the website should email: QSPL@autismcommunitytraining.bc.ca

  • Once ACT has had the opportunity to properly organize this information, the QSPL will be a listing of individual professionals, who qualify under the requirements set out by MCFD.

  • Agencies are only listed for the convenience of parents looking for a local agency. Where ACT has no information about the professional associated with a listed agency that is indicated. As of March 1st, no agency will be listed, unless there are named professionals from the QSLP under the agency's name. Parents must ask about the qualifications of the professionals associated with their program. Parents should read: "How to Assess the Qualifications of Professionals - Tips for Parents" on www.actbc.ca.


Out-of-Province Behaviour Consultants

  • Please note that it is been very complex to update contact information for out-of-province providers, in particular those based in the US, as we have had little information to draw on. As of the beginning of February 2005, contact information has been confirmed and expanded for the majority on this list. However, the process is just beginning for requesting documentation and criminal record checks. The process for requesting criminal record checks for US service providers is particularly complex because of the lack of centralized CRC system in the US.

  • Parents should be aware that consultants from outside of Canada do not yet have CRC’s on file with ACT. We continue to investigate how we can resolve this situation.

ACT is committed to working with professionals to ensure that this list is an effective tool for families seeking to find qualified service providers. Our goal is to have updated the status of every professional on the QSPL by March 1st, 2005. Individuals who do not meet the requirements will be removed. We appreciate your patience and co-operation as we work to develop the QSPL.
