Through training and business adaptations, we aim to educate and empower community groups to be more inclusive and supportive of families living with autism.
We have partnered with venues, attractions, restaurants and establishments to create initiatives, support projects, and provide workshops that build capacity.
We are proud to have partnered with the following community groups:
- Vancouver International Airport
- Telus World of Science
- BC Sports Hall of Fame
- Rogers Arena
- Sky Zone
Sample Resources Co-Developed with Community Groups
Vancouver International Airport
Individuals with autism often face sensory and anxiety-related issues in new environments such as an airport. The I CAN Fly program, developed with YVR, aims to make travel more accessible for families living with autism. The program includes an annual accessibility tour, a travel resource toolkit (activity storybook, checklist, airport map and tips for travel), a step-by-step video series, and the YVR Autism Access Sticker which provides an expedited airport process through the YVR FasTrack lanes. Learn more about the I CAN Fly Program and accessibility at YVR.
In collaboration with the Vancouver Canucks, we have created an Activity Storybook that will help families living with autism prepare for their next hockey game at Rogers Arena. The Rogers Arena Activity Storybook describes the hockey game experience as well as expected social behaviours in the given context using words and pictures.
Telus World of Science
In collaboration with TELUS World of Science, we have developed an Activity Storybook that will help families living with autism navigate the Telus World of Science. Participants can read this Telus World of Science Activity Storybook prior to arriving to help prepare them and build predictability.
