Individually designed programs best meet the needs of a person with autism. Those with autism should be learning, living and working in settings where there is ample opportunity to communicate and interact with others who have the skills they lack.
Mental Health & Wellness Team (MHWT)
This month we offered another virtual ASD Information Session to our members. We had a lot of adults of the spectrum reach out to us this month wanting to get connected with the organization and with our team. Many have shared that they would like to meet other autistic adults for social support, so we have been discussing this amongst our team and planning on how we can support with this. We have had children, youth, adults and parents start counselling sessions this month. We had the opportunity to provide a virtual ASD education session to First Nations communities around the province this month also. We are already starting to discuss and plan for group programs in the Fall.
