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.
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.
