Approximately 50% of all savants have autism, while only about five to ten percent of individuals with autism possess extraordinary savant skills.

Our Spring therapy block is up and running! We welcomed twelve new skill acquisition clients this month, and their sessions are off to a great start. Two virtual parent groups began this month: More Than Words and Parent Management Training. We had four social groups start this month for children and youth: Young Adult Society, Circle of Friends, Integrated Play Group and S-L-Play. Our ASD consultants Jessica and Faly hosted a Colours of Coregulation virtual information session for parents and caregivers this month. Our Summer program registration will open on May 30th – keep an eye out for more information on this!
