Family events are an opportunity for the whole family to enjoy a wide range of activities together throughout the year. Events are delivered in inclusive and welcoming environments allowing families living with autism to meet each other, connect, and build relationships.
Due to the family nature of these events, the ratio of staff to participants is reduced, however, many volunteers will always be on site to help support families.
- Open to immediate family members only due to limited space
- All family members wishing to participate must have an active CAN Membership
- A family member with an autism diagnosis must participate in the program
