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.

Administration & Development

Lynn Latta

Executive Director

Lynn has always been keenly interested in social justice and supporting people in overcoming challenges to live the life they desire for themselves. A 25-year career at CNIB; service on various boards, including 9 years with CLASSIC (Community Legal Assistance Services for Saskatoon Inner City); and completing the Executive Coaching program through Royal Roads University, were all foundational building block experiences that Lynn draws on every day in her role at Autism Services. She has been with Autism Services as of September 2014, serving as the Executive Director. What uplifts and motivates Lynn is being able to contribute to an organization doing meaningful work with compassion and integrity. She finds inspiration in the people Autism Services serves—along with the employees, volunteers, donors and funders—who demonstrate unwavering commitment, creative approaches to overcoming challenges and celebrating successes…big and small…with one another.
