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.
Family Programs are wrapping up their 10 week Winter session this week. With our new parent-led options available, we were able to offer programs to several more children than anticipated. Thanks to all involved who helped make this happen. Our Spring block of programming will see the continuation of our super successful Olympic Weightlifting program with the Saskatchewan Weightlifting Association. We have also welcomed back Carmen Loncar, one of our Music Therapists, to our Family Music Therapy program. And with some brand new equipment too!
Finally, after much discussion, we are excited to launch our Easter Day Camp program again! Due to high demand and limited spots available, we experimented with a lottery system to fill the program spots. This is not something we will do regularly but we’re always seeking new, inventive ways to fill our programs. Bring on the warm weather!
