ASUS Buddy Application 2014-15
The Buddy Program is for children aged 4-16 years who have autism. This program is designed to be an opportunity for parent relief and assistance, but also to give valuable experience to enthusiastic young people who have a special interest in working with children with disabilities. Where an appropriate match is found, your child will be matched with a Queen's Student Volunteer.
Parents, on behalf of their child, and Volunteer Buddies are asked to commit to meeting weekly for 2-3 hours. The focus for this time is usually determined by the family, based on the needs and interests of the child and may include activities such as playing together, skill building, academics, or outings in the community.
At various times during the year, ASUS Students also organize group activities for all the students and buddies to do together.
For more information, please contact the Autism Ontario Kingston office at 361 Montreal Street (Extend-A-Family, Bagot Street Entrance), firstname.lastname@example.org or 613-507-7896.
All Applications must be received by Monday, September 29th, 2014
