Please send us your activity idea now!
It is time to send us your ideas! August 1st is the deadline for events to take place in October, November, and December of this year. What activities do your children enjoy? What guest speakers do you want to hear? What do you want to learn more about?
The link for the Idea Form is below. Feel free to fill it out and return it. Or, simply send me your idea and I can take it from there.
Over the past year Autism Ontario Kingston, in partnership with the Potential Programme, has offered a variety of activities. The common goal for the majority of these activities has been to provide a social learning opportunity. Some activities have been more successful, and had a better turn-out, than others. This is to be expected. As Potential Programme funds are provided by the Ministry of Children and Youth, how the funds are spent and the number of individuals with ASD and their families supported must be reported back.
Further, for some activities, arranging volunteers to work at “registration” and open and close the building has been a challenge.
For future activities and events, minimum numbers of participants and volunteers will be required in order to offer the event. We understand things happen, so if you sign up for an event, and are not able to attend, even if it is the day of the event, please let us know.
Thank you Rachel & Patti
