Free Web Stream Series
ACT has developed a free Fall/Spring series of presentations by speakers who will inspire and inform via web streaming. This initiative is in response to the concerns of families and individuals across the world, affected by autism and other special needs, who have been devastated by the pandemic. They are looking for practical resources that are accessible from their homes at little or no cost. Registration is free for these events. They are open to anyone who is interested, internationally, but the focus is on supporting caregivers.
Back to School Resources
ACT is gathering resources for the return to school which we hope will be of assistance to families, and the professionals who support them. Includes details on: BC’s Ministry of Education’s Back to School Plan, Knowing Your Rights and Advocacy Tips, BCEdAccess' Exclusion Tracker Survey 2020-2021, Great Back to School Resources, and where to turn if you need support.
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.
