About the South West Chapter of Autism Nova Scotia
The South West Chapter of Autism Nova Scotia officially began with a group of dedicated parents in 2009. Since then, the Chapter has grown to offer direct support to families through programs such as the Autism Arts program in partnership with the Yarmouth Art Gallery. We offer support to families in Yarmouth, Digby, and Shelburne.
After ten years of working in the community without an office space, we are pleased to announce we moved into our new office on November 1, 2019. We are located at 101 Water Street (Pier One). We are excited to see the Chapter grow and evolve. We continue to support individuals and families with ASD and are excited to develop new programs to help meet the needs of the community.
Currently the majority of our programming is offered in Yarmouth, but is open to anyone living in the tri-counties. Some programs in the Yarmouth area include: YACRO Summer Recreation Respite Program, Autism family camp sponsorship to Camp Brigadoon, and Autism Arts. We are working on a program in the Digby area and hoping to start some programming in Shelburne as well.
Our office hours are flexible to meet the needs of the community. It is best to call ahead to be sure we are in. You can also reach out via e-mail or our Facebook page (South West Chapter of Autism Nova Scotia).
