Q: What is the difference between DSO and DFO?
A:

DSO (Direct Service Option) means the IBI treatment is provided by a government program such as CHEO.

DFO (Direct Funding Option) means that the IBI treatment is provided by a third party. CHEO provides funds to the family to use towards the cost of IBI therapy at a private center. Families can also hire their own team with this method as long as the individuals on the team are approved.
