VISION: We see a community where all people with autism are valued and have a life filled with possibilities.
MISSION: Autism Edmonton enhances the lives of families and individuals living with autism, by providing life-long support and creating awareness, acceptance, and opportunities in our community.
In the course of a year, Autism Edmonton receives around 10,000 general inquiries and 1,500 specific requests for support. Autism Edmonton’s most essential function is helping families, individuals with autism and professionals to navigate the service system. Such work is preventative in nature and is aimed at avoiding or mitigating crisis situations.
In addition to navigation services, Autism Edmonton provides direct support through social-recreational programming and discussion-based groups. Autism Edmonton also promotes the understanding and acceptance of autism and fosters inclusiveness through events and community presentations.
