Approximately 50% of all savants have autism, while only about five to ten percent of individuals with autism possess extraordinary savant skills.
Mental Health & Wellness Team (MHWT)
Our PERMA group for parents and PEERS Social Skills group for adolescents are both up and running, and going great! This month, our team has been busy completing intake appointments for new clients and members, and also supporting our existing clients. At the moment, we have children, youth and adults accessing counselling support – both in person and virtually. We have heard from many of our adult clients that they would like to connect with other autistic adults, so we are in the process of setting up opportunities for this, and we will be sharing more information on this soon. We are busy preparing for upcoming virtual community training sessions on ASD – we look forward to continuing to build autism acceptance and understanding in the community.
