Windsor, Ont
Map
Description
Trying to understand what someone with autism is going through is extremely difficult unless you are on the spectrum yourself.
But there is hope for those on the autism spectrum and others trying to understand and offer support for those living with autism. Major advances are being made to not only help treat autism, but to understand what it is and convey how teachers, caregivers and parents can better meet the needs of people with autism.
“People working with people on the spectrum with basically outdated information or perception they really cannot grasp onto until they experience it for themselves, they are constantly trying to help someone without understanding where it is they are coming from.” 
Individuals can reserve one 20 minute session 
Each participant must complete a medical waiver
There will be an area for games and crafts for attendees to wait while family members access the experience.
Cost
 $5
