Family Support

When most of us hear the term autism, we think of a childhood disorder where early assessment and intervention are of the utmost importance. Autism spectrum disorder is, however, a lifelong condition.  We know that some individuals can improve to the point of no longer needing the assistance of a parent or caregiver, while others will continue to require support throughout their lives. 

Our Family Support Team are a valuable resource for families trying to do their best in raising a child on the spectrum. Our Family Support Team can help with the tools, resources, early intervention strategies and steps for an initial diagnosis by providing you with the proper agencies and organizations to better assist families and individuals with paperwork and services available in their region. 

Autism Canada is dedicated to providing compassionate information to individuals on the autism spectrum and their families.   Our Family Support Team is available to support not only children on the spectrum, their parents, and caregivers, but the youth, adults, and seniors whose needs will change throughout their lives.
