Join us for a 3-hour workshop that covers the essential information that families need to know at the start of their autism journey. 

  • Basic information about autism
  • How to prepare for an autism assessment and what your family can do while you wait
  • Pros and cons of private vs. public assessments and diagnoses
  • What to expect at the assessment and after a diagnosis
  • Tips on coping strategies, how to talk to your family and friends about autism, etc.

You will also have the opportunity to pose questions to a Board-Certified Behavioural Analyst (BCBA). For many families, this workshop is the first touchpoint to the autism community. It is a place to meet other parents and families facing similar challenges in your community.

Program Objectives

  • Families across B.C. are empowered to make educated decisions about their child’s autism assessment process
  • Families across B.C are empowered to access the support and information they need

Refreshments will be provided.
