Thank you for those that attended our Annual General Meeting (AGM) this last month, May 5th and a special thanks to the people that served our charity over the last few years! Our newly elected volunteer board of directors are Jesse Galvon-Reid, Jon Taylor, Theri Nicholson, Stephan Herman and May Zhong.

Don't worry there are still many opportunities for you to give back to your community. The board is looking to fill some volunteer positions on our Expo, fundraising, and event planning committees with as small commitment as 2 hours per month. We need volunteers to help be a pair of eyes for events and clean up to ensure the events go smooth and safe. If you can't commit to only 2 hours a month, just let us know as we have some single events that only would require a few hours over the whole year!

Email us at to find out more.
As mentioned above, we are all very excited to announce that our Annual Victoria Autism Expo is set for Sept 29, 2019 at the École Victor-Brodeur (School) at 637 Head St. More details to be available soon.
As a registered charity with CRA, we provide tax donation receipts and your donation helps with the work we do with individuals with Autism right here in Victoria!

Consumer Corner - June 2019.. Continued from above..
Success is measured differently for everyone.  But a success is always a success. Playing catch can be a milestone in your child’s development.  It is a game that builds skill and confidence. It is a social game because playing catch requires at least two participants, and because participants can be substituted at any point during the game, catch can be used to place children in social situations where they will interact with each other. A simple activity such as playing catch can be a game that builds a bind between you and your child.
Start small.  If catching a ball is difficult, make the ball bigger or easier to catch.   Keep the distance between catcher and thrower short and as skills improve make incremental changes.  It’s a journey and not a sprint.
Andrew Koster is the owner of Perfect Day Special Needs Store, which has a great selection of adaptive balls that make catching less of a challenge and more of a success. Click here to see a selection of adaptive ball and until June 15, they are 10% off.
