The AID Search is a new online portal providing access to 3,000 resources from across BC and around the world. Formerly two separate databases, AID Search has been in development for the past year to improve the experience of users. The keyword search helps users quickly review our curated records, which link to evidence-based practical information and community resources, sourced internationally.
ACT has created hundreds of resources, including Autism Videos, Information Resources, and BC Community Resources.
Start your search with one of 30 categories such as Diagnosis & Assessment, Behaviour Support, Mental Health and Advocacy.
