(5)

We are one of the largest not-for-profits in Hamilton; each year we provide service to approximately 1,000 children, teens, adults and families. Over 60 years ago, Community Living Hamilton was founded by a group of mothers who came together in a church basement to discuss how they could support each other and their sons and daughters with special needs. Since then, we have continued to establish programs and services that have enabled our clients to fully participate and contribute to their community. We continue to promote full inclusion through person-directed planning; which promotes independence, personal choice and assisting our clients lead the lives they want. Whether it's living independently or in a group setting, working in a supported environment or participating in community activities, we are here to help people realize their full potential and dreams.

Can An App Spot Kids With Autism?

Researchers hope that this technology will eventually provide greater access to autism screening, which is an essential first step to intervention. Their goal is to have a well-validated, easy-to-use app that providers and caregivers can download and use, either in a regular clinic or home setting.

Researchers say they are one step closer to using a smartphone app to identify children with autism.
