About the Movie:

A man named Tim Templeton narrates and describes his seven-year-old self as being jealous of his fast-talking, briefcase-carrying baby brother named the "Boss Baby". When he goes on a mission to win back the affection of his parents he finds out about a secret plot by Puppy Co.'s CEO, Francis E. Francis, which revolves around his baby brother and threatens to destabilize the balance of love in the world. Both brothers must unite to save their parents and restore order to the world and prove that love is indeed an infinite force

Social Butterflies Girls Group

SOCIAL BUTTERFLIES - a Group for Girls with ASD in Grades 2-6

The Social Butterflies is a social learning opportunity for girls on the Autism spectrum who are in grade 2 to grade 6.

The group is organized in collaboration between Autism Ontario members and Portia behavior therapists.

These one hour playgroup sessions would be ideal for girls who have verbal communication skills and can function independently without one-to-one supervision but would benefit from opportunities to interact with other girls on the spectrum.

Neurotypical peers of the same age will also be invited to the group.

The group’s focus will be play based while encouraging social interactions through activities such as crafts, social games, science experiments and more. If this would be a good fit for your child, or if you have a neurotypical daughter that would be a great social role model, this group may be for you!


Session dates: April 22, May 6, May 20 and June 10, 2017

Spots are limited. Priority will be given to children that can attend all the sessions listed.
