A Self Help Guide


Order a copy of this invaluable resource.

The purpose of this Guide is to assist Alberta families and adults living with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) as they pursue or plan for a meaningful adult life.

This Guide addresses key issues and provides useful information in the areas of adult diagnosis and treatment, legal and financial matters, post-secondary educational options, employment opportunities and alternatives, community living, and personal relationships.



Autism Calgary does not support, endorse or recommend any method, treatment, product, remedial center, program or person for people with autism or autism related conditions. It does, however, endeavour to inform because it believes in the right to have access to the information available and to make individual choices.

I Have Autism

"I have Autism. I may not look unusual, but I experience the world much differently than you do. Autism makes it difficult for me to communicate with you, and sometimes causes me to have unusual behaviour. I am doing my very best. Please be patient with me and my caregivers, who are trying to give me a full and happy life."
