Creating Awareness for Children with Autism
There are many people with autism living in our communities. Few of us, however, understand the daily and life-long challenges they and their families face, and the isolation they endure.

People with autism are often lonely. You can help us change that. Together for Autism has created this PSA to help Ontario’s communities learn to accept children with autism and to encourage Ontarians to donate to the Together for Autism Campaign.

Together for Autism is a province-wide initiative of Autism Ontario that helps public and private elementary and secondary schools, as well as daycares, to create a welcoming environment for students with autism.

Money raised by the Together for Autism Campaign goes to:
  • Developing educational videos, DVDs and printed material that fosters greater understanding of autism
  • Supporting an ongoing and wide array of autism research in Ontario through scholarships and grants
