Your support provides autistic individuals with the opportunity to access a variety of programs and services dedicated to empowering them and their families to thrive. Together, we empower families, change outcomes, enrich lives, foster independence, and transform the communities in which we serve, all while promoting inclusion. The Centre has been providing comprehensive and innovative supports and services to children, youth, adults, and families affected by ASD in the greater Edmonton area since 1997.
Why give to the Centre?
For 25 years, the Centre for Autism Services Alberta has been a leader in providing programs and services for ASD individuals and their families. Giving to the Centre for Autism Services Alberta encourages individuals and families affected by autism to access programs by reducing fees, thereby reducing or removing a financial barrier to services. We are the only Autism service provider in Alberta that is internationally accredited by the Commission of Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF). CARF is an independent, non-profit accreditor for health and human services, enhancing the lives of persons served worldwide.
Our values reflect who we are and who we serve.
Collaboration: We create authentic partnerships.
People Focused: We seek to understand each person’s specific context, dreams, and goals to promote their achievement.
Autistic Voice & Choice: Our services reflect what is important to autistic people.
Continuous Improvement: If better is possible, we do it.
