ACT’s Autism Manual for B.C. is, as the name implies, mostly specific to British Columbia but there is information that is more broadly relevant. Community organizations and parents are welcome to print the relevant sections of the manual for easy reference.
Update (August 2023): Chapters 1, 2, 3, and 7 are temporarily unavailable as ACT updates these chapters to ensure accuracy. We apologize for any inconvenience.
