This committee chaired by Board of Directors member Tom Jackman gives perspective where it is needed most. These individuals lend insight into the issues affecting those touched by #autism across the lifespan. We not only invite our committee members to place a spotlight on issues but we invite them to provide potential solutions and to be included in the decision making.
Dermot Cleary shares this #heartwarming message. We understand. 13 of our 15 board members are on the #autism spectrum or have a child that is on the spectrum. Our #ASD Advisory Committee is comprised of over 30 adults on the spectrum. Our unique experiences and perspectives together with those from individuals and #families that contact #AutismCanada guide the work we do.
