The Autism Awareness Centre is based out of Calgary, Alberta in Canada, and believes that education is the key to success in assisting individuals who have autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and other disorders such as Tourette Syndrome, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD). With numerous social, communication, and behavioral intervention methods and biomedical interventions, it is important to keep parents and professionals on the leading edge of new information.
