The Ability Hub staff in collaboration with the Autism Community Network participated in the second annual Autism Community Weekend on September 15th and 16th, 2012. On Saturday, this unifying community event brought together individuals affected by Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), their families, support agencies and government officials. Under sunny skies at the Calgary Quest School fun activities such as pony hops, a bouncy castle, sensory and interactive music therapy opportunities were available and enjoyed by all.
In addition autism resources, supports, information and agencies were on hand to share their network of services. On Sunday, the 13th annual Allies for Autism Family Fun walk/race was held the Al Azhar Shrine Centre in Northwest Calgary. Funds raised will be distributed to local agencies through community grant applications
