Healthy Relationships, Sexuality and Autism (HRSA)

Autism Nova Scotia is excited to announce the launch of our NEW Healthy Relationships, Sexuality and Autism Program!

This is an interactive program that meets twice a week for two hours (at a time) for 8 weeks. 6-8 participants will be supported by Autism Nova Scotia’s Program Director and trained volunteers throughout the 8 weeks of the program.

Topics Include:
·         Human Development
