Approximately 50% of all savants have autism, while only about five to ten percent of individuals with autism possess extraordinary savant skills.
Residential Group Homes
We currently serve 21 individuals with ASD.
The primary focus of our Adult Support Programs is to be person centred and support each participant to achieve their own goals. Staff in our Adult Support Programs are trained in the principles of Gentle Teaching. https://gentleteaching.com/ca/ It is our hope that each person we support will feel safe and loved, loving and engaged.
Goal: To support our residents’ quality of life, and provide opportunities for enrichment
in their homes and communities.
Adult Day Program
The Day Program supports adults with autism to reach their individual goals. Individuals are encouraged to build new skills, and participate in work, recreational, and educational opportunities in their communities and homes.
There are currently 10 individuals supported in our Day Program. Throughout the week, the participants enjoy a wide range of activities including:
- Office cleaning
- Volunteering with community organizations
