We are pleased to share some exciting news on the horizon for Society for Treatment of Autism and The Sinneave Family Foundation!
Society for Treatment of Autism and Sinneave Family Foundation have worked in partnership at The Ability Hub location over the past several years developing and providing skill building programs for adolescents and adults impacted by autism. Our shared goal has been to build programs that will be eventually be sustained in the community.
In January 2018, Society for Treatment of Autism will begin providing these same programs, independent from Sinneave, at one of its Calgary community facilities. This move represents a large boost in community based program capacity and is an exciting evolution of both the Society for Treatment of Autism and Sinneave organizations.
What does this mean for you?
