Community Grant Recipient

Children’s Autism Services of Edmonton is pleased to announce that we are one of the Autism Speaks Canada 2021 Community Grants Recipients. Lost in the Pandemic: Supporting families who have been overlooked and underserved, is an innovative project that aims to provide community support services to little ones who may not be developing and have been overlooked and underserved because of the evolving COVID-19 pandemic.

Through this grant, Children’s Autism Services of Edmonton will be offering group screening sessions free of charge for children aged 12-36 months. Children will receive a screening of their speech, language and social development from a speech-language pathologist. Parents will be provided with a short screening report and further recommendations.

If you’re interested in becoming involved in the project click here or call 780-495-9235.

9th annual Maier golf charity tournament

Attention all golfers!

The Maier Centre for Autism Charity Golf Tournament in support of Children’s Autism Services of Edmonton will be held on June 10th, 2022 at the Quarry Edmonton Golf Club.

It’s going to be an exciting golf event with breakfast on-the-go, a banquet lunch at the clubhouse, silent auction, prizes, and some friendly competition.

This golf tournament is ideal for anyone wanting to align themselves with a high-profile event that supports children and families in our community. Like so many industries and businesses, it has been another difficult year for our non-profit organization as well. We are grateful that we can host our golf tournament again this year and appreciate your support.

The demand for services continues to rise and your support makes an important difference in the autism community. Funds raised will allow families to improve their quality of life through critical respite for families. This important service is not fully covered by government funds, and is in jeopardy. Let’s work together and take care of these families.

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….”
