AutismBC is excited to announce an new program specifically for grandparents and we need your help to make it great. 

Connecting with Your Grandchild on the Spectrum Though Storytelling is coming to the AutismBC Lending Library this Fall, however before it launches we will be hosting a Focus Group to gather feedback from grandparents of someone on the spectrum.  Our goal is to ensure this program reflects the needs of the community and we can only do that by getting your input.

Venue: Vancity Room, 2nd Floor, Pacific Autism Family Centre, Richmond BC.
