Resources

  • As families receive their new diagnosis, or enter the next life stage with the disorder, we provide support and/or advice in medical and community assistance, information on treatment programs and direction on self-help options.

    AutismBC has acted as a primary source of autism information for the province of BC for the past 40 years. Dissemination of information and referral of services are available through our Informational Officers, Regional Coordinators and these resources packages.

    We can recommend personalized & individuals resources and support.
