AbilityOnline Launches New Website

Ability Online (http://www.abilityonline.org) is a free monitored online community for friendship, support and skill development opportunities for youth with disabilities/chronic illness, their friends and family. Online volunteers monitor all public messages in order for our members to have a positive online experience, to build friendships, share their hopes and fears, find role models and mentors and most of all feel like they belong.

In 2011, we launched a brand new version of our website which now has separate sections for the kids, parents and professionals and include several program modules (friendship builder, homework help, bully bouncers and leisure education) and a forum dedicated to Autism.

For more information, please contact information@abilityonline.org or call 1-866-650-6207.




Shayam Kaushal Charitable Foundation Donates $60,000 to Autism Ontario!

The Shayam Kaushal Charitable Foundation may have only had their second annual gala but they sure have done incredible work in their short existence. Created to honour the memory of Shayam Kaushal, this Foundation is based on Hope, Strength and Determination – 3 qualities by which Shayam lived his life. Click here to read more about their story.

Autism Ontario would like to send a big thank you to the Shayam Kaushal Foundation for their generous donation, which will go to support families, children and youth across the province.
