This comprehensive training course has been very popular for years, and the all-new online version will help people who are unfamiliar with autism have more successful interactions with the ASD community.
Non-autism organizations/businesses in Ontario that service the ASD community are eligible to receive a limited number of course registrations based on meeting at least ONE of the following criteria:
Frequent interactions with the ASD Community

Responsibility for community safety
The role of your organization/business is to maintain community safety, which may include interacting with individuals with ASD.
E.g. Police, Fire, Paramedics, Shelters, Mall security, Law firms etc.
Advances independence of adults with ASD
