Waiting For Assessment Workshop

September 14th
3688 Cessna Drive, Richmond 

Join us at Pacific Autism Family Network Building on September 14th for a 3 hour workshop that covers the essential information that families need to know during the start of their autism journey. 

  • Basic information about autism
  • How to prepare for an autism assessment and what your family can do while you wait
  • Pros and cons of private vs. public assessments and diagnoses
  • What to expect at the assessment and after a diagnosis
  • Tips on coping strategies, how to talk to your family and friends about autism, etc.


You will also have the opportunity to pose questions to a Board-Certified Behavioural Analyst (BCBA).

For many families, this workshop is the first touchpoint to the autism community. It is a place to meet other parents and families facing similar challenges in your community.


Program Objectives

  • Children with autism across B.C. get the best standard of care and support possible to enable them to reach their full potential
  • Families across B.C. are empowered to make educated decisions about their child’s autism assessment process
  • Families across B.C are empowered to access the support and information they need
