From Motherhood by Mandy Farmer

Milestones like this are celebrated on a daily basis at our centre! Way to go little buddy! 💙

You know how we say autism families don't take things for granted? This is what we mean. E is 6.5. Fine motor skills are so very far behind. He can't write yet or draw a square. And honestly those things don't concern me as much as the self-care fine motor issues. Opening packages, dressing, feeding himself with a utensil. People have no idea how hard our kids have to work to be able to accomplish these tasks consistently. There are so many therapies that can help, but so many do not have access to those therapies. He has been doing this program for about a month and is now zipping independently, but I want you to be mindful of how much effort it still takes. When we give our kids the opportunity they can work hard and reach a higher potential. The policy makers, school districts and insurance companies that refuse to invest in these therapies now are keeping these amazing individuals from becoming the most independent version of themselves. It is so exciting to see him meet these milestones, even if they're met on a different timeline than that of his peers.

Our Story

Above and Beyond Autism Consulting Services (ABACS) is a Regina-based company dedicated to providing services to individuals diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and their families throughout Saskatchewan.

ABACS’ mission is to maximize the potential of each learner with autism by providing an intensive, comprehensive, individualized program based on the scientific principles of Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA). The three founders, Christa Baron, Erin Di Stasi, and Gizelle Gay, all began working in the field of autism as students. For Gizelle and Erin, this meant while obtaining their degrees at the University of Regina. Christa first started working with children with autism while she attended high school!

​**While Erin is one of the founding members of ABACS she is now staying home full-time to care for her family. Her commitment to helping families and children with ASD during her time at ABACS did not go unnoticed and she will be missed!

In 2010, their dream became reality when they founded a company designed to provide more intensive evidence-based interventions to individuals with ASD. ABACS began modestly, as many small companies do. Company operations initially took place out of both the owner’s and the learner’s homes. In 2011, with growing interest from more families, ABACS was able to expand into a small centre-based location. This enabled families to bring their child to a centre-based program that is individualized for each child. Learners foster new skills in a fun, safe, nurturing and positive environment.
