From First Concern to Action
If you are an adult and think you may have autism, please see Is It Autism and If So, What Next? A Guide for Adults (available for free download).
If you’re a parent or other caregiver concerned that a child may have autism, it’s important and always appropriate to take your concerns to a doctor. Autism Speaks Canada encourages you to do so promptly as earlier intervention can improve outcomes.
In the meantime, this section of our website can help you recognize possible signs of autism and get the services your child needs. Please see the three steps below.
Step 1: Learn the signs
Step 2: Get your child screened
Step 3: Access services
