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.
Things are continuing to roll along at Children at Risk. Speaking of Rollin', we had a very successful 10 t h annual Rollin' for Risk Bowl - A - Thon in January. We were able to have 20 teams participate and a good time was had by all. We also participated and benefited from the Inaugural Ottawa New Year’s Eve Charity Ball presented by Destiny’s Way. We are very ap preciative of these new, fun initiatives designed to help our charity. It is a great way to bring the community together and raise funds at the same time. Up to March, we continued to be busy with both the SENS 50/50 and the Ottawa 67's 50/50 ticket sales and are excited to be invited to sell at the Spring Fury Soccer Games! In addition, w e will have our 2 nd Annual “Walkin’ & Rockin’ for Risk” Walk - a - Thon this Spring. We are hoping for even more participation and great weather!
Children at Risk’s March Break camp was another hit, providing a fun environment for the children during their winter break. This tends to be a popular activity. We are also pleased to be offering the Family Fun Night, Saturday Fun Club, Typical Teens, Social Skill Groups, and Sib ling Workshops throughout the year on an ongoing basis . I recently attended a cheque presentation from The King’s Daughters and Sons. Their very generous donation will be used towards Camp Kaleidoscope . We cannot say how much their generosity has benefite d the children attending our camp and their parents. It is truly appreciated. We are now (hopefully) looking back on Winter in the rear - view mirror...
I want to wish you a great Spring!
