Welcome to Children At Risk Online
Provide services and programs to families of children diagnosed within the Autism Spectrum Disorders to develop their child's behavioural, communications and social skills, and to advocate for their ongoing needs.
Our Community–Based Special Projects are financed through donations and fundraising. Nominal fees are charged to cover registration and operating costs.
Although my calendar states that March 20th is the First Day of Spring, as I look out my window – well, there seems to be a difference of opinion! I remember last year at this time we were starting to see grass, but Old Man Winter is still holding on for March 2013!!
So much has happened in the past 3 months for Children at Risk! Winners of the Celebration of People 2012 Advocacy Award for Camp Kaleidoscope, moving our offices at the end of January, the NHL season starting up again, so a BIG commitment of Volunteers to sell 50/50 tickets to the end of the short season – whew! We just have barely time to catch our breath and we will be into our Rockin’ for Risk dance on April 6th and then preparation for our 3rd summer of Camp Kaleidoscope. With guidance from our Board of Directors, Brenda, Bambina and Hazel have been working very hard to keep not only our day-to-day operations going, but also managing new additions to our Services like our Saturday Fun Club Respite days and our 1st full-day March Break Camp. We also acknowledge Liz, Yassemin, Amanda, Sheila, Nancy, Kim, Heather, Lisa, Dhuha, Jasmine and the Volunteers who keep our Social Skill Groups, Sibling Workshops and Typical Teens Sessions running throughout the year!
2013 marks 34 years that Children at Risk has provided Services and Supports for children with Autism and their families. Glad you can be along for the ride!
