The ASD Collaborative is a group of professionals, families, and self-advocates in the Waterloo Region who are committed to working together to identify and collectively problem-solve issues in our community as they relate to people with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Many people with ASD experience feelings of being overwhelmed due to sensory input such as bright lights, loud sounds, strong scents, etc. The Sensory-Conscious Working Group is a subcommittee of the ASD Collaborative, and we are looking at making our community in Waterloo Region a more accessible place for people who experience issues with sensory input.

There are three workshops DSRC will be offering this month. Please call at 519-741-1121,email at r.khanam@dscwr.com or go to our website www.dscwr.com to register.
