Approximately 50% of all savants have autism, while only about five to ten percent of individuals with autism possess extraordinary savant skills.
Autism Intervention Program (AIP)
This month, we saw the end of one block of service of one-to-one sessions and we began prepping for another. We were very excited to prepare for and begin small in-person groups again; we are running play groups and self-regulation groups! The clients seem to be enjoying it so far and it’s been great to help facilitate some social interaction with among peers again. We also posted for some term positions available in AIP and began interviewing potential candidates. We are hoping to have another SLP and Behaviour Therapist join us to continue supporting our ever-growing caseload. Finally, we have started planning for groups in the fall, which will be delivered both virtually and in-person. Watch for information about our fall registration launch in August!
