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.
This month the MHWT has been busy planning for a variety of community training presentations which will be taking place this month and over the coming months. We are continuing to reach out and connect with new clients who are interested in accessing counselling, funding support and advocacy. We also received a number of new referrals this month. The MHWT had the opportunity to attend a virtual training on sexual health and autism, and we are looking forward to implementing the information learned with our clients. We had many families sign up for our ASD Information Session which is scheduled for July 8th. We are still accepting participants for this session. If you are interested in attending, please let a member of the MHWT know (email: firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com)
