We Are You

Autism Connections Fredericton is not only our staff and board of directors, it is all the community members who support us daily by volunteering at our center and events, it is all the people who provide us with material support and kind-hearted persons helping us to reach out to more people who need our help the most.

Thanks to your involvement we are not only helping hundreds of people with autism spectrum disorders, but also significantly raising awareness of the community on ASD and educating the public on the many ways of dealing with it correctly.
