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.

We completed the PMT 6-19 program at the end of March and are currently completing the home visit component, which will be held online via Zoom. The families were engaged and many shared their successes with the program and the tools they were provided to support their child. Six families successfully completed the program!
We also presented the monthly ASD Information Session to a total of 7 families. The families who attended the session are new members to Autism Services of Saskatoon and their child has recently received the diagnosis and are seeking further information on what ASD is and what resources and services are available to them to support their child going forward. The ASD Information sessions are done over zoom and the sessions are alternated each month from a daytime to an evening session, so MHWT can capture as many families as possible.
