Support the Autism Community - Support ACT
This 'Giving Tuesday', ACT is asking for professionals and family members to consider making a donation to ACT. Throughout the COVID-19 crisis, ACT has continued to support those with autism and associated neuro-diverse conditions, providing 7 free live web-streams in April and May to address the immediate needs triggered by the pandemic; updates on the policies of the BC Government affecting families and autistic adults; and our current series of free parent-focused web streamed practical presentations by terrific presenters.
Thanks to the generosity of our funders and our presenters during last year's campaign, ACT has been able to accomplish a great deal in 2020. ACT is a registered charity so we can provide you with a tax receipt.
ACT is gathering information to support families during the COVID-19 crisis, including resources specific to those who are neuro-diverse and useful general resources. Our COVID-19 Resources page will be updated as new resources come in.
