About Autism Videos @ ACT

Autism Videos @ ACT (AVA) are online videos, streamed over the internet to be viewed on your computer or mobile device when and where it’s convenient to you.

What are the advantages?

  • Watch it when and where you like: at home, at work or on the go.
  • Watch the whole video, or in small chunks – watch only the parts that are relevant, or re-watch parts whenever you like.
  • Share with your team –  to start a discussion or to get everyone up to speed.

What do I need ?

To view the Autism Videos @ ACT, you will need:

  • an Internet connection (you can watch in either SD for slower connections, or HD for high speed connections)
  • speakers or headphones to hear the audio
  • we also recommend a quiet space if you can manage it!

Technical help

ACT has a technical support page to introduce you to the video controls and cover some common technical challenges.

What does it cost?

All videos are free thanks to sponsorship. ACT is seeking funding to sustain this service, video and edit new presentations, and develop more online training and development materials. You can contribute – donate to ACT.

Why doesn’t ACT record all live events?

ACT cannot record all of our events. This is sometimes because the topic will be quickly out of date. ACT requires the permission of presenters and family members who provide family videos. It’s a significant investment of time and money for ACT to record, edit and provide online access to the videos.

We would love to do more, and appreciate our sponsors, donors and the support of our presenters. We welcome your feedback on suggested topics or sources of funding: info@actcommunity.ca

Can I get a DVD copy or download a copy? 

ACT videos are only available through streaming video. All videos are available in standard definition to accommodate slower connections. If your internet cannot accomodate streaming video, you may be able to make arrangements at a local school or library.
