Chapter 11 - ACT's Guide to Building a Community Group

By Pugh, Deborah


Chapter 11 of ACT's Autism Manual for B.C. discusses how one can organize a Parent Support Group in their own community.

Autism Community Training (ACT) is a not-for-profit society that provides information and training, in accordance with international best practices. ACT's goal is to enable parents, professionals and para-professionals to support individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) to live productive and satisfying lives within their families and communities. ACT provides a listing of professionals whom parents contract with to provide services to their children with autism, who are under six. The registry of autism service providers (RASP) consists of behavior consultants, speech-language pathologist, occupational therapists and physical therapists.
