We assist youth diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) by offering needs-based training to ease the transition to becoming a contributing member of society.
We are committed to improve the lives of those affected with ASD through public awareness initiatives:
By fostering human connections through online support groups
By offering opportunity for continuous education to improve life and workforce competencies.
By hosting social activities to encourage interaction with diverse communities
At Adarius for Autism (A4A) we typically work with young autistic kids and youth ranging between the ages of 8 to 22. We are a not for profit Corporation that is based in Edmonton. One of our main objectives at A4A is creating awareness for those who have Autism Spectrum Disorder. We are able to pragmatically assist these individuals by integrating them in a diverse community. One that is not inclusive only to those who have Autism Spectrum Disorder. In doing so, we hope to build a program that is beneficial to a diversified community, that will eventually aid in the acceptance, tolerance and assimilation of those with autism. At A4A we intend to create opportunities for these individuals by assisting with job training, job applications and discovering talents and career passions. Our primary method of education will be through the employment of edutainment. We hope to incorporate edutainment in our many activities such as: sports, music classes and computer skills. Moreover, we will have coordinated volunteer and work opportunities for bright enthusiastic and ambitious individuals looking to make a difference in their community.
In the very near future, we will be opening a facility to further assist youth with ASD and their loved ones.
