While there is no one known cause for autism, it is known the disorder is not caused by poor parenting.

Charlotte and Juliane recently facilitated the final session of PERMA Self-Care Group for Parents and received wonderful feedback from their participants about the benefits of the group. One participant shared the following testimonial: “PERMA is another great program from Autism Services. I found the program to be very helpful to focus my energy into more self-care. Each week we learned about a strategy to manage your wellbeing, each one was a valuable asset to have in your tool box. The strategies build week to week as we worked through the program. Sharing experiences with other parents with children with ASD provided valuable group support. I highly recommend the program to other parents.”
The MHWT had the opportunity this month to complete training on Autism Couple Relationships – the information learned will be helpful when supporting our adults clients navigate relationships. The MHWT is continuing to offer counselling support, financial support, advocacy and navigation of services for children, youth and adults on the spectrum, and their families. We wish our clients Happy Holidays and we look forward to connecting with our clients in the New Year!
