Autism Connections Fredericton offers important family services to the greater Fredericton and Oromocto communities.  We are, first and foremost, a resource centre where families can find valuable and reliable information on autism diagnosis, assessment, intervention and life skills. We also provide skills courses from time to time on select topics such as learning to ride a bike, gymnastics, Tae Kwan Do, swimming, cooking, art, music and many other areas of interest.  We host summer camps, tutoring sessions, and other services that come available.  We offer opportunities for persons with autism to socialize in a supportive atmosphere at teen nights and sessions for siblings and adults.  We also host support groups for parents, education sessions for parents and some larger workshops for the whole community.  ACF provides recreational and social activities for the whole family such as Halloween and Christmas parties, sleigh rides, and many other events.   Finally, ACF is all about connections and we work hard to make sure families are connected to each other and to the best services possible in our region.   

The Autism Connections Fredericton Bowl-A-Thon will be at Kingswood Entertainment Centre on Hanwell Road on Sunday, November 17th from 3 to 5 PM
We aim to have 20 teams of 5 bowlers each.  Each team will have the objective of raising a minimum of $1000 - averaging about $200 per player.  If each player can get $10 donations from 20 friends, their personal goal will be achieved.  Rather than going door to door, bowlers will direct their potential donors to our campaign page on the  Canada Helps Web Site.  Our Bowl-A-Thon web page has photos and facts and each Team has it's own link on the site so they can post their own information and photos.   Prizes will be given for the 3 teams and 3 individuals that raise the most funds.  Tax receipts are sent by e-mail by Canada Helps for donations over $15.
You can be a Team Captain (maximum of 20 Teams) or a team member ( 4 additional persons per team) or simply pledge your support online to a team of your choosing.  Whatever way you support us, we thank you for supporting people on the Autism Spectrum! Click to join our team!
