Welcome to our 2017-2018 Chapter Leadership Council

Thank you to everyone who attended our Hamilton Annual Chapter Meeting
which took place on Monday, April 24, 2017.

Congratulations to our newly elected Chapter Leadership Council:

Christine Joseph- Davies- President
Michelle Campbell- Secretary
Eric Dolmer- Treasurer

A HUGE thank you to our past CLC Members Jim Martin, James Fowler, Mary Orlik, Barb Reeves, and Jocelyn Tan for all of their hard and support to help our Chapter Grow.

We are still in GREAT need of Members at Large who would interested in sitting on the CLC. In case you did not know, Autism Ontario Hamilton Chapter is run solely by volunteers and one part time staff who only works a few hours a week. Our new Chapter Leadership Council (CLC), is made up of 3 people, and all are parents of children diagnosed with Autism. There would be no Autism Ontario Hamilton Chapter without that CLC to run the Chapter and assist staff so we need YOU help!

If you would be interested in being involved with our Chapter sitting on our CLC as a member at large please email office.hamilton@autismotario.com.

Thank you! We look forward to working together to make this another amazing year for the Chapter.

Hamilton Chapter: Kinark Family Camp- July 11-14th 2017

Hamilton Chapter 4 Day Family Camp at Kinark Outdoor Centre from July 11-14, 2017

Open to current Hamilton Chapter Members Only

*Please read all of the details below*

We are happy to be able to offer the opportunity for some of our members to attend Kinark Outdoor Centre this summer with their families. Our Chapter is able to offer a subsidy to a limited number of spots that Kinark has placed aside for our members.

The Kinark Outdoor Centre program was developed in direct response to families who greatly appreciated the Autism Family Respite Weekends, but are now looking for an option for families who did not require one-to-one support. It is a four day summer camp program for a group of 10 ASD families. Kinark’s traditional camping experience and environment coupled with a staff team who have a significant amount of training and experience in autism services makes this family camp a great summer get-away.

The cost of the 4 day Family camp is $750.00 all inclusive (Accommodations, Meals, and Activities for the WHOLE Family). The Chapter will offer a subsidy of $350.00 to each family attending.
Each family would be responsible for the cost of $400.00 to attend.
*Payment can be made by cash or cheque to Autism Ontario Hamilton Wentworth Chapter after confirmation of spot*

Please express your interest in attending by email to our Hamilton Chapter President Christine Joseph- Davies at autismcjd@gmail.com by Friday, May 26, 2017 at 3:00pm.

Please watch and shareNew Autism Ontario Video

This video, which features the incredible Michael McCreary, is a wonderful introduction to autism spectrum disorder. The video was created to support customer service professionals when they provide services or support to people with ASD; however the positive response from the general public has been overwhelming. This video is so accessible and entertaining, it offers something for everyone.

We want everyone to understand autism and to see the potential!

As you may know, the Ontario Government is in the midst of changing how it provides services to children and youth with ASD. The feedback you provide here will help us give timely and informed feedback on province-wide initiatives which we will share with the government.

We will also incorporate these valuable perspectives into our future programs and our advocacy work.
