Autism Edmonton enhances the lives of families and
individuals living with autism, by providing life-long support and
creating awareness, acceptance, and opportunities in our community.

Occasio Social-Respite Program



Occasio is a spectrum-inclusive social program for youth and young adults ages 10 years and up  (including 18+).
The purpose of Occasio is to provide young people on the autism spectrum with opportunities to be socially active individual citizens, living as part of their community. Occasio empowers participants to build relationships with their peers in a safe and supportive environment, while also providing families with easy access to respite support.
“Spectrum-inclusive” means we encourage socialization and independence among all participants, while ensuring proper support based on each individual's needs.
Sign up for whichever activities you like - but register early to avoid disappointment! There is a limit to the number of participants and we'd hate for you to miss out.
For a sneak preview of what Occasio will be up to next, check out Autism Edmonton's Event Calendar. (Occasio’s detailed calendar is visible only to logged-in members.)
