About the organization

AbilityHub_2

An initiative of the Sinneave Family Foundation, The Ability Hub is focused on improving the quality of life and level of independence of adolescents diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). A 17,000-square-foot Resource Centre, The Ability Hub offers a series of programs designed to help individuals living with ASD develop work-appropriate behaviours, while fine-tuning vocational, life, and social skills in a structured, caring environment. In addition to providing resources and hosting events, seminars, and discussions related to ASD, The Ability Hub also runs PEERS (Program for the Education and Enrichment of Social Skills), a Social Skills Group for adolescents between the ages of 13 – 19 who are interested in learning ways to help them make and keep friends. Through the Launch Program, adolescents and parents are provided with a planning tool to help them meet their potential as an adult.

Who can access these services?

All adolescents +13 who have been diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder are eligible to access The Ability Hub’s program services. Adolescents between the ages of 13 – 19 who are interested in participating in the PEERS or Launch programs are required to complete an intake interview to determine eligibility. The Resource Centre is open to anyone looking for credible resources relating to ASD.
