The open houses had a terrific turnout offering families and service providers a glimpse into available resources for children with autism, including Hands’ Intensive Behavioural Intervention (IBI) program.

“Autism signs and symptoms are usually noticeable in early childhood around 18 months. It is important for us to connect with parents and have discussions about what early signs of Autism they might look for in their children,” said Nathalie Ouellette, Senior Manager of Autism Services at Hands. “Through events such as our open house, we have the privilege of inviting our community in to see the amazing work our team does on a daily basis to improve the lives of children and their families.”
