Autism Ontario – Ottawa Chapter
Living with a person who has a developmental disorder such as an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), or Autism itself, can be challenging. Trying to sort through the myriad of information, services, and treatments, plus dealing with school boards and agencies, only adds to the challenge. On top of that, there are the ongoing needs of the Autistic individual.
We’re here to help. At the Ottawa Chapter of Autism Ontario, we understand the challenge of dealing with Autism/ASD. We are an independent, non-profit organization committed to improving the quality of life for people and families living with Autism and related disorders. Our membership is composed primarily of parents in the Ottawa-Carleton region, as well as interested individuals and professionals who deal with Autism and ASD.
The chapter is run by a Leadership Council. The officers of the council are volunteer members of the chapter who are annually elected by the general membership.
We provide information, support, resources, and advocacy to advance the quality of life for individuals affected by ASDs in our community.
The Ottawa chapter has been in existence for over 30 years and was one of the first chapters. There are now 29 chapters throughout the province.
To ensure that each individual with an Autism Spectrum Disorder is provided the means to achieve quality of life as a respected member of society.
