Regional Autism Centre

As a volunteer-run chapter of Autism Nova Scotia, the Bedford/Sackville Chapter provides recreation and leisure opportunities and events to families and individuals with autism, as well as facilitates parent support meetings the first Tuesday of each month.  We support the growing number of families and individuals belonging to the autism community in the central region.

This group was founded by moms who were looking for social opportunities for their children and others on the autism spectrum.

You are invited every month to our support meeting. Please join us for an evening of discussion and support in a relaxed atmosphere, stress-free and without judgement.  It is open to parents, family members and caregivers of persons with autism. We meet to share & learn from one another. Meetings typically take place from 7pm – 9pm on the first Tuesday of every month. Our support meetings are usually held at the Bedford Office of Autism NS. 1550 Bedford Highway, Suite 302 ( SunTower)

We also hold FREE social events for families to come to and have fun. We currently hold dances, swims, a huge summer picnic and an awesome Christmas bounce party.  These events are essential for families.  They provide a place for families to connect with each other and a place where kids with ASD can interact with other children just like them.

We provide all families in the central region with a warm welcome – that is what we are here for.
