Community Services 

At Including Kids, it is important that our clients are given every opportunity possible to be included in our community. From social events, to community trainings, babysitter courses and more, Including Kids helps more than just our clients with autism. We want to be sure that family members, community members, and babysitters all have the resources they need to make your child feel welcome and safe.

This service is FREE of charge to children and their families. Childcare for attending parents is also included if necessary. Registration is required.
