What We Believe

Every child diagnosed with ASD deserves the opportunity to thrive and achieve their full potential.

Early intensive intervention is crucial for the development and well-being of children with ASD.

Supporting families and providing them with the tools and resources they need is essential.

Advocacy plays a vital role in ensuring the needs and rights of autistic children and their families are recognized and met at all levels.

We are proud to have received the Community Development Icon award at the West Ottawa Business Excellence Awards. This recognition highlights the significant impact we have made and continue to make in our community.

As a nonprofit organization, our community-based special projects rely on donations and fundraising efforts. We strive to keep our programs accessible by charging nominal fees to cover registration and operating costs.

We invite you to join us in our mission to make a meaningful difference in the lives of children with ASD and their families. Together, we can create a brighter future for these children and empower them to lead fulfilling lives.
