People do not grow out of autism. Autism is a lifelong disorder; however, the manifestation of symptoms may change over time. While there is yet no known cure, autism is definitely treatable.
Residential Group Homes
We currently run six residential programs in the city of Saskatoon. Funding to maintain the group homes is provided by the Saskatchewan Government Department of Social Services, Community Living Service Delivery.
Our homes serve adults with a variety of needs and are currently home to 19 individuals with ASD.
All of our homes have 24-hour staff supervision, Programming in the homes is based on individual needs and focuses on basic living skills
and social interaction, as well as involvement in recreational activities in the community.
The primary focus is on preserving a home-like atmosphere for the residents.
Goal: To support our residents’ quality of life, and provide opportunities for enrichment
in their homes and communities.
Adult Day Program
Autism Services of Saskatoon’s Day Program started in July 2014. The Day Program supports adults with autism to reach their individual goals. Individuals are encouraged to build new skills, and participate in work, recreational, and educational opportunities in their communities and homes.
There are currently 11 individuals supported in our Day Program. Throughout the week, the participants enjoy a wide range of activities including:
- Office cleaning
- Volunteering with community organizations
- Community events
- And more!
