A Message from Shona Casola

Hello Durham Families;

It has been a pleasure to get to know you, work with and learn from you and to watch your children grow and thrive over the last eight and a half years. I am sad to announce that my role with Autism Ontario in the Durham community is coming to an end. Fear not, Christa Sawyer, who covered my second maternity leave, will be taking my place, and I know you will be in excellent hands. Christa can be reached at I am not leaving Autism Ontario entirely; I will be working 2 days out of the Toronto office.

I have made the difficult decision to leave my Community Event Coordinator role in Durham Region to allow time and distance to begin my own private practice as a Social Worker, working to provide enhanced services to families of children with disabilities. I encourage you to stay in touch at or to check out my website at

It has truly been an honor and a privilege to get to know each and every one of you and to be a part of a chapter that is such a big part of the autism community in Durham Region. I do sincerely hope our paths cross again and wish you all the best for the summer and into the future!
