ACT is a registered not-for-profit society. We are a province-wide information and referral service created to support families of children with Autism Spectrum Disorders. We offer families (and professionals) a wide range of positive and practical information on everything from sleep problems and diet, to core issues such as diagnosis and aspects of intervention, including information on setting up programs for their children.
