Perhaps Cristina can help. As an adult with Asperger’s Syndrome who has mentoring and self-advocacy experience, Cristina would be happy to discuss your concerns and questions. While her personal experience is rooted in Autism Spectrum Disorder, she is happy to meet with anyone with special needs or exceptionalities, their families, or professional supports, to offer new insight and ideas to help you move forward.

4th Annual Trick or Treat Party - Autism Ontario

Sunday, October 29 5:30PM → 7:30PM Eastern Time (GMT-05:00)
Calling all Ghosts & Goblins.... It's no trick, we have a treat! A Halloween Party! Children of all ages will be able to go door to door and yell "trick or treat" and receive treats in a friendly, safe environment. There will be Free Play in the structure before and after "trick or treating," then join us for light refreshments and take in a short halloween film in the main party room. Being our 4th year, this event has grown in popularity and can become noisy and very busy. This year we have a few spots for early admittance to this event. We all understand that most of our kids like a little quieter, but there are children who will not be able to attend a Halloween event unless they come when it is quiet, with less people around. We are trying to ensure that all can participate - please only select this option if absolutely necessary for your child to attend. This event is open to individuals with ASD, their siblings and caregivers only within Waterloo region or registered members of Autism Ontario Waterloo. Members receive advance registration. Maximum 2 caregivers per family.
