Children Autism Services of Edmonton – stories of Hope:
“As new immigrants to Ontario, learning that our happy and energetic son, Jonah, has ASD was a heavy weight that came down upon us. We were still adjusting to our new lives in this new land, and learning of his diagnosis, made us feel helpless and uncertain of our family’s future. But instead of feeling sorry for ourselves and complaining on how great odds stack against us are, we seek out help from those in the autism community. The community embraced us with unwavering support, love, and understanding. We feel so welcome it’s as if we were always a part of this growing community.
2 years and 3500 kilometers later, our autism journey took us to Children’s Autism Services of Edmonton (CASE). With his new CASE community, we can see that Jonah is happier and more engaged. He enjoys his time in school and we’re learning a lot from his therapists and consultants. We know our journey is long and there will be new challenges ahead. We also know that whatever challenges await us, there will always be help available….”
