Autism Awareness Initiatives in Your Community
Mar 27, 2019
As we celebrate Autism Awareness Month in April, we are excited to increase understanding, acceptance and support for individuals with autism across BC. With 1 in 66 Canadian children diagnosed with autism, the need for support is greater than ever.
