As of March 2014, 1 in 68 children have been identified as having ASD. Across British Columbia, there are parents and family members who meet regularly to share helpful information and support. These meetings provide essential opportunities to connect and network with other individuals whose lives are changed by ASD and listen to guest speakers on a wide range of meaningful and relevant topics.

Don’t be shy. Reach out and contact the nearest facilitator on the list below. We’d be happy to hear from you.
