DURHAM: Autism Home Base (AHB) is hosting Durham Region’s watch party of the 7th Annual Canadian Autism Leadership Summit (CALS) on Wednesday, October 6th. One of the largest autism-related conferences in Canada, fostering dynamic discussions, CALS2021 will continue advancing the development of a National Autism Strategy.


October is Autism Month, providing an opportunity for Canadians to learn more about the neurological differences that often affect communication, behaviours and social interactions.


“I can’t express how much it means to my family and me to have the support of Canadians. Recognizing those with autism is a giant step towards accepting and appreciating those who experience the world differently. Different, not less,” explained Terry Batley, an autistic self-advocate on the Board at AHB.


AHB is an innovative charity serving autistic adults (18+) and their families in Durham Region, Peterborough and surrounding areas, in Ontario. They welcome new inquiries. You can learn more about the programs and make a tax-deductible donation online, at autismhomebase.com.


“Autism Home Base is a safe place for autistic adults and their families to make friends. We thrive and grow with social connections,” Batley added.
