The health and safety of our autism community and beyond is at the forefront for Autism Awareness Centre Inc. For the first time in our 17 years as a company, we had to cancel our April conferences in Ottawa, ON and Halifax, NS. Gatherings for any purpose must not take place during this global response to flatten the curve of the COVID-19 pandemic.
As a result of these recent events, Autism Awareness Centre Inc. (AACI) has been hard hit. Conferences, trainings and sales from our bookstore are what keep us going as we operate with no sponsorship, funding or grants of any kind. There are small things you can do to help us keep going and continue the global work that we do.
We are taking steps to offer new ways of learning. For example, we have launched a series of inexpensive E-books with more to come. We will offer webinars in the near future to support on-going development and education for families and professionals.
If you need any resources, we have a wide selection of products in our bookstore. The proceeds from the bookstore go directly back into AACI operations. We are continuing to process orders quickly and efficiently. Please order from us if you need something.
When we can offer our conferences and trainings again, please support them by attending. We will continue to offer a wide variety of topic and world class speakers at our conferences across Canada.
Thank you for your kind words of support during this difficult time for all of us. I am still here writing, answering your e-mails, and posting important information on our Facebook page. If you need any help, I will continue to do my best to find answers for you. Stay safe and stay well in these uncertain times we are facing.
