Approximately 50% of all savants have autism, while only about five to ten percent of individuals with autism possess extraordinary savant skills.

This month, we had 24 families participate in the virtual psycho-educational information session on ASD. This information session supports individuals and families with understanding the autism spectrum. Additionally, this session provides information on what supports and resources are available to autistic individuals and their families in the community, and where to go to get an autism assessment. We will continue to offer our virtual autism information session every two months – the date and time of the next virtual information session will be included in the AIP summer guide.
