Durham Region


Welcome to your Durham Region Autism Ontario Chapter! Our goal is to be a reliable source of information and support for all Durham residents who have a connection to autism including families, children, adults on the spectrum, caregivers, support workers, and teachers. 

What we do: 

  • To help our community learn about ASD, Chapters conduct special speakers and/or training workshops. These cover such topics as advocacy, support and the latest news in ASD research. These courses are advertised by email and our website. 

  • Works with community partners to promote and enhance awareness about autism.

  • Holds various fundraising events throughout the year, and run programs and events for individuals with ASD and their families to get involved, socialize and network.
