Be an Ambassador


Over the last 55 years, many individuals have led by example and made a difference.  Here are some examples.

Rebecca Knauff, Rainbow Daycare:

“Rebecca is a strong advocate for not only children with Autism, but all children. She has a gift for teaching and remarkable insight into the multifaceted learning styles of children with Autism.”

Marcia Pridham, Resource Teacher Westisle Composite High School:
“Marcia has worked hard at bringing non resource-based students into the Resource Room and has helped resource-based students to join the larger community. She is a one of a kind teacher.”

Alanagh MacDougall, Parkdale Sherwood Headstart:
“Alanagh adapts activities so that everyone can participate. Any adaptation Alanagh would do would be invisible, never drawn attention to, all in the run of daily activities.”

Rachelle Gauthier, Principal Ecole St. Augustin and “ Dream Team”:
“When a young student with autism entered grade one this small Francophone school welcomed him and has been a community of caring ever since. The Principal often volunteered to support during recess and help him learn new social skills during play”

Kevin Stonefield, Principal Montague Intermediate School: (as written by present and former students and parents):
“He cares about where all students go after intermediate and tries to keep in touch with everyone. “His door is always open. He has the type of leadership qualities where he leads by example rather than authority.”
