Autism and Arts in the Laurentians; Program receives $25,000 grant from Autism Speaks Canada

The Autism and Arts in the Laurentians (AAL) program in Lachute is this year’s Quebec recipient of Autism Speaks Canada’s Family Service Community Service Grant.  A ceremonial cheque for $25,000 was presented to the group at the 2018 Autism Speaks Canada’s Montreal Walk on May 27.  AAL also had a table at the event which took place at McGill’s Percival Molson Stadium.

AAL is a free art program and social club for English-speaking teens and young adults on the autism spectrum.  The program is organized through the Community Learning Center and is held weekly at Laurentian Regional High School.  The club was created to fill a service gap in the Laurentians and is the first program of its kind offered to English-speaking families in the region.  For more information about the AAL program, please contact Melanie Bujold at 450-562-8571, ext. 8449 or [email protected]
