It is estimated, that one in every 68 children is born with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) in Canada (CDC). There are approximately 500,000 Canadians living with ASD. This figure does not account for the numerous family members and caregivers whose lives are affected by autism. For over 10 years, SaskFEAT (Saskatchewan Families for Effective Autism Treatment) have been actively advocating for services and support for individuals living with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), their families and their communities.
- SaskFEAT is a parent run, volunteer run organization that helps families deal with autism.
- Our goal is to be a positive resource for assisting people with ASD, their families and communities to seek the service to meet their needs that will enable them to reach their true potential.
- Our strength is the parent/caregiver connections that are made, through advocating, and supporting each other.
