Residential Services

Kerry’s Place provides a variety of workshops throughout our region. We are able to work with parents, community partners and schools to provide information and strategies on a large number of Autism related topics. Some of the subjects we have covered are an introduction to autism, communication strategies, navigating the special education system, and make and take visuals. We are happy to modify our information to be relevant to any audience from school aged children to adults. Learn more and register for Workshops.
