  Le programme Mini Wheats favorise une participation active à différentes activités éducatives mettant en vedette des chevaux miniatures. Il ne s’agit toutefois pas d’un cours d’équitation. Objectifs de ce programme : améliorer les habiletés de communication, acquérir des compétences en leadership et apprendre à résoudre des problèmes en faisant preuve de créativité.


NOTE: Supervision of children/youth at this Social Learning Opportunity is the sole responsibility of parents/guardians and caregivers; childcare will not be provided./ À noter: Durant cette occasion d’apprentissage social, les parents, les tuteurs et les fournisseurs de soins demeurent les seuls responsables de la surveillance des enfants ou des adolescents; aucun service de garde n’est fourni.

Due to allergies and sensitivities, please refrain from wearing perfume, cologne, aftershave, or scented products such as hairspray or lotion./ Comme certaines personnes souffrent d'allergies et d'intolérances diverses, nous vous demandons de ne pas utiliser de parfum, d'eau de Cologne, de lotion après rasage ni de produits parfumés comme les fixatifs ou les lotions pour le corps.

 Autism Ontario is grateful for all the volunteers who support activities across the province./Autisme Ontario souhaite remercier tous les bénévoles qui appuient ses activités un peu partout dans la province.

General FAQ

1.) Do I need to print out ticket or email confirmations to attend this event?

For most of our events there is no need to print anything, unless the event specifies otherwise.  When you arrive at the event, you will have to check in at the registration desk.  You will be asked for your name and how many people are attending with you.  That's all.

2.) Do I need to bring proof of diagnosis?

No, not needed.  Again, just check in at the registration desk and enjoy the event.

3.) Is there a cost to attend this event?

Almost all of our events are free of charge because the cost is covered by Autism Ontario's Potential Programme, in partnership with Ontario’s Ministry of Children & Youth Services and the local Autism Ontario Chapter.  If there is a cost, you will see it on the registration page when you select how many ticket you want.

4.) Do I need to be a member of Autism Ontario to register and participate?

No.  While membership does provide other great opportunities, events provided through Autism Ontario’s Potential Programme are open to all families of children with ASD, under the age of 18, who reside in Ontario.
