So many things are one thing on paper, and yet another in real life.
On paper, The Autism Support Network is a parent-led organization that provides education, support and treatment information to families across British Columbia.
What it truly is transcends that.
We were proud to shoot a promotional video for the network this past weekend, and what we discovered was a tightly-knit second family of people brought together by their experiences with autism in their lives. Talking with the directors of the network, themselves parents of children with autism, other parents and Behaviour Analysts that work with the network, it became evident that this group of people have bonded deeply through their common experiences, although varied, and the support they provide one another and spread outwards is extraordinary.
They have learned and grown so much both independently and together, and that wealth of knowledge and experience is what they want to share as they expand their family to include those who are looking for education, support, treatment information or just someone who understands their situation.
They provide a save place to talk and learn for those who have something to share in common - the love of their children. For more details visit their Facebook Page.
