Autism Ontario at the Station Gallery!
A group of teens from Durham Region gathered on a sunny July day to talk about how they want their community to understand what having autism means to them. The result was incredible insight into their lives through beautiful works of art. This art is now on display, through to September 6, 2014 at the Station Gallery in Whitby (1450 Henry Street, Whitby – open M-F:10-4:30/S&S:12-4).
We invite you to check out this incredible work and to share your
feedback with us. A notebook for comments is provided at the gallery
or contact firstname.lastname@example.org for additional feedback or info.

Take 10 minutes and tell us what you need!
Autism Ontario has launched a province-wide online survey. We want to hear from the thousands of families, individuals and professionals across the province that access Autism Ontario supports, services and information. The information gathered in the survey will provide important feedback on our programs, identify regional gaps in service, as well as provide insight into what families and supporters would like Autism Ontario to focus its efforts on.
Your opinion is extremely important. It is how we focus our efforts on the areas that matter most to you and your family.
Complete the survey now!

Are you interested in skating lessons for your child on the spectrum?
We have an opportunity to run private skating lessons with Edges Skating School this September. Ice time is very hard to come by, but we have managed to secure some Thursday afternoons from 4:00 – 5:00 pm in Brooklin. If you would be interested in signing your child up for a program like this, please e-mail email@example.com so we can determine if there is sufficient interest to run a program like this! If this time does not work for you, we would be able to secure ice next spring / summer, would this timing be better? Thanks for your interest and have a great summer!
