Changing the lives of children with autism

Get involved

There are many ways you can get involved in the B.C. autism community! Everyone has something to offer, and if you’d like to help us by organizing events, creating posters, hosting a drinks or music night, we’d love to hear from you.

Another way you can help is by donating directly to the Vancouver ABA Learning Centre [link to ABA Learning Centre]. ABA, or applied behavioural analysis, is the most accepted autism treatment to date. It teaches children motor, social, verbal and reasoning skills by using positive reinforcement. Although some of these skills may seem basic, they are difficult for autistic children to grasp without specialized learning. Studies show that if started at a young age, ABA is one of the most effective autism therapies.

Unfortunately, autism treatments are still under-funded by the B.C. government. We need more trained ABA therapists and schools—especially in remote areas of the province. More specialists and learning facilities will accommodate the needs of our autistic community and work to bring down the high price of autism treatment.
