Did you know?

KidsAbility Autism Services is pleased to offer “KidSmartz”, a new parent workshop aimed at providing tips and strategies for keeping our children on the Autism Spectrum safe.

We know each family’s experience with Autism and safety is different. So please bring your questions and strategies to share with one another. Together we can keep our kids safe!

Special Guests from the Waterloo Region Police Force and Family and Children’s Services will also be in attendance.
