Waiting For Assesment Workshop

October 5th
1pm-4pm
New Heights Autism Support Society, 624 Tranquille Rd., Kamloops, BC 

Join us at New Heights Autism Support Society on October 5th 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 and 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
  • Families access the timeliest autism diagnosis possible

Refreshments will be provided.
