Videographer - Canadian Autism Society

Sep 20, 2020
Toronto, Ontario

 

Our Organization

 

The Public Health Agency of Canada estimates that one in every 54 Canadian children is born with Autism Spectrum Disorder.  While there is some support available for families with Autistic children, support for Autistic adults is minimal.

 

When individuals are first diagnosed with autism, there is a lot of confusion on the next steps to take. The Canadian Autism Society (www.canadianautismsociety.com) is developing a System Navigator to combat this challenge by providing information on the next steps to help guide them. There will be a feature to search for different organizations that provide therapies to support individuals with autism and their families based on age, therapy type, and postal code.
