As you may have heard, April is World Autism Awareness Month! In light of this month-long celebration, we thought it would be appropriate to let you get to know our Laurel Behaviour Support Services team a bit better and celebrate with some thoughts and photos. Through this, we hope that our message of inclusion will reach more people and raise greater awareness about autism.

If you have a friend or family member with autism, or if you have worked with someone with autism, feel free to share some of your favourite memories and/or experiences with us – we’d love to hear them! Have questions about autism or unsure about how to describe the spectrum to someone who is unfamiliar with it? Check out this informative comic here.
