About AutismBC

Today in BC, 1 in 32 children receive an autism spectrum diagnosis and there are over 22,000 children on the autism spectrum.  Autistic children grow up to be autistic adults and AutismBC continues to make progress in developing programs and providing supports for children, adults and their loved ones.

“My family has benefitted from the many resources from AutismBC.,” said a mom in an AutismBC parent survey. “In the world that my children live where compassion and understanding are not always present, I know that being a member of AutismBC has helped give my family many opportunities that I would not have known about.”

AutismBC is a grassroots organization founded in 1975 to support people on the autism spectrum and their families. Since our humble beginnings, we have grown to become one of the most trusted non-profit organizations for autism in BC. We support the community by providing parents and communities with knowledge and by engaging with people on the autism spectrum to create stronger, more diverse communities.

Please help AutismBC continue to change the lives of so many.  Buy your tickets today!

About AutismBC

AutismBC is a small, non-profit charity that encourages inclusion and acceptance for the entire autism community. We value lived experience and prioritize listening so we can make decisions that reflect the community’s needs and wants.

We are a grassroots organization founded in 1975 to support people on the autism spectrum and their families.

The AutismBC programs have become my lifeline, I attend the monthly community support group meetings and I appreciate the professional people who come to share information, I learn something at every meeting.  I also attend the social meetup events; these are high priority for me. Meeting other families who share similar circumstances is encouraging, enlightening and supportive.

Every story is unique and I always pick up some information that is helpful for my circumstances. It is so comforting to know I am not alone on this journey. Through my journey with AutismBC I have been empowered to enrich many aspects of my grandchild’s life.”

Your Impact at Royal Columbian Hospital:

When you play, our patients win. Like Marcus Burry, who was born extremely prematurely at 24 weeks and 4 days and weighing just 755 grams at birth.

 

Marcus was delivered by emergency C-section and immediately placed in the care of Royal Columbian’s Variety Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), one of the only Level 3 NICUs in the province, providing care to the smallest and most vulnerable patients, including “micro preemies” like Marcus. He remained there for more than 4 months.

During his stay in the NICU, Marcus survived a number of complications, and after 132 days in care, he was finally healthy enough to go home to Surrey.

His mother, Makayla, is grateful to have him home and see him thriving. “Some days you feel like you’re going to be there forever, and it’s never going to end,” she says. “But, there is a light at the end of the tunnel.”

Your lottery purchase helps support the exceptional care that Royal Columbian’s NICU provides throughout the Fraser Health region.
