A couple weeks after receiving the above email I received a follow up email containing a link to what they refer to as "toolkits, webinars and infographics covering a wide range of topics from education, to housing and beyond specifically for Prince Edward Island." As above, I haven't used any of these services but if you have please comment below and share your experience. Here is the email: "Greetings I’m writing today as a representative from AIDE Canada, as I feel I have a resource that could be used within your community. As a collective, we are curating some of our content and sending it out to groups that we feel could benefit from it. AIDE and partners have created many toolkits, webinars and infographics covering a wide range of topics from education, to housing and beyond specifically for Prince Edward Island. Below is a link to the Overview we have created for your perusal. Please pass it around to those you feel may benefit from it. Overview Link: https://aidecanada.ca/learn/asd-id-core-knowledge/prince-edward-island-collection Website: https://aidecanada.ca/ Other helpful resources included on the website are: a free, nation-wide lending library a database of articles and research summaries focused on autism and/or intellectual disability a national map of autism and/or intellectual disability programs and services a calendar of events, including on-demand streaming of past recorded webinars, and several other features that we hope will be very valuable to our community. The direction and applications of the site were developed after many months of community consultations, quantitative surveys and focus groups with autistic self-advocates, parents, family members, service providers and educators. Please feel free to reach out with any questions, or feedback you may have! Best Regards www.aidecanada.ca
