Services and Supports Now Available in Calgary

The Centre for Autism Services Alberta, serving families in Edmonton for 20 years, is now offering Specialized Services and other Developmental Supports in Calgary. Specialized Services (SS) and other Developmental Supports are funded through Family Support for Children with Disabilities (FSCD) (Alberta Human Services) to support families of children with severe disabilities including autism.

To access Specialized Services and other Developmental Supports in Calgary, children require a documented diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder or a query of autism and must qualify under FSCD’s criteria.

Individualized services are delivered in the home and the community and may include psychology and behavioural consultation, speech-language and communication services, occupational therapy, physiotherapy, aide supports, family coaching, and case management.

Our focus is on the child and the family with services designed to improve daily living skills and increase caregiver capacity to provide developmentally appropriate parenting. Children are provided direct care to improve function and parents are coached on concrete skills that will increase their child’s independence and improve overall quality of life for the entire family.
